Scientists can't measure the composition of the universe as a whole. But they can tackle the puzzle piece by piece, by studying the composition of the different objects the universe contains, such as stars, gas clouds, and comets. In this activity, a supplement to the Hall of Meteorites Educator's Guide, students use a graph and the periodic table to learn about the abundance of elements in the Sun. The activity begins with a discussion of the periodic table and a graph that shows the current composition of the Sun. Students then compare the graph to the periodic table, and use it to determine the relative abundances of hydrogen, helium, aluminum, and gold. Less

This comprehensive guide to the Astronomy section of OLogy, the Museum's science Web site for kids, explains how after-school educators can make the most of the site. An introduction to the Big Ideas in Astronomy brings educators up to speed on how astronomers study the universe, the questions they ask, and the key concepts that govern what happens in space. A Site Map shows where to locate all Astronomy resources, from stories to quizzes to hands-on activities. Astronomy units offer ways to combine different types of resources around a topic such as Our Solar System or Scientists Who Study Space. Follow-up questions encourage inquiry-based learning. Wrap-Up Astro Projects suggests fun ways to wrap up any of these units. A Links and Resources section lists recommended astronomy-related books and Web sites for educators and for kids. A glossary of terms wraps up the guide. Less
