This resources provides an opportunity for students to compare their thought processes to those of an astronomer. My students were surprised to see the similarity in some of their ideas to those of the experts. The classification activity was fun and easy to use.

Try this activity with middle school students. It is about classifying objects using Hubble Space Telescope images of the Hubble Deep Field. You can do the activity on the web or use the paper version.
