Transcript
Life of a Star Project
8th Grade Science
Mrs. Hickle, Mrs. Kirts, Mr. Powell
Due starting April 27-28 (full credit)
April 29 (-20 pts)
April 30 (-30 pts & final day)
We are all made of star material. The atoms of some of the elements
that make up our bodies were created in the stars. And just like living
things, stars are born, live their lives, and then die. Some die quietly, while
others die violently, like in a supernova.
You are to build a 3-D model (not a poster or diorama) of the Life
Cycle of Stars. Your project includes the 3-D model, a report including
citing your sources, and an oral presentation. You are to include the
following in your model of the Life Cycle of a Star:
a) Life cycle- stages, colors, temperatures (3-D model)
b) Technology used to research Stars
c) Choose a specific Star to research and include to following
in your essay:
What type of Star is it?
What will it be when it dies?
Is it part of a constellation? Which?
H-R diagram placement
What color is it? Temperature? Magnitude?
What is the distance from Earth in light years?
REMEMBER:
 Label each part of the Life cycle
 Include all criteria
 Be creative-make your Star phases as life like as you can. Have
fun and make it colorful.
Written report will be 500-700 words MLA formatted. Cite your sources
with a Bibliography.
Project will be orally presented to class. Discuss the different stage a star
goes through in its life cycle.
