Life Cycle of Stars Flipbook Assignment:
For students to think through the life cycle of one type of star (Low mass, Medium
mass, High mass) and be able to apply that information to determine the future for our
Sun and other stars.
1. 2 pieces of White 8 1/2 x 11” paper
2. Color pencils or markers
3. Life Cycle of Stars Graphic organizer/ textbook
1. Divide the paper in half long-ways
2. Divide the paper in half again and then again (should have 8 rectangles on the
3. Draw pictures of a star from birth to death as it goes from stage to stage.
4. Cut out pages and staple so that it flips in order from birth to death.
1. Gather in groups of 3 (one for each mass type)
2. Share each flip book explaining the stages to the other two
3. Complete the worksheet provided.
Life Cycle of Stars
1. In the life cycle of a star, which mass(es) begin as a Nebula?
2. Which mass(es) end as a black hole?
3. The fuel for all stars is what gas?
4. What happens that similates the birth of a star?
5. Explain what happens in nuclear fusion?
6. What is going to happen to our Sun’s magnitude and temperature when it goes to
its next stage?
7. What is the final stage of our Sun’s life?
8. What will happen to our Sun’s magnitude and temperature when it goes to its
final stage?
9. What determines which star will go supernova?
10. What two forces cause the changes that occur in a star?
11. What determines the strength of those two forces?
12. Where would you find a Low mass main sequence star on the H-R diagram?
13. Which massed star is able to fuse heavier elements in its core before it dies?
14. Rank the stars in order from LONGEST life to SHORTEST life.
15. On the H-R diagram below using three different colors, draw lines showing stars
in each mass going through their life stages. Be careful to think of
Temperature and Magnitude as they change.
Absolute Magnitude
Sun +5
