Life Cycle of Stars and the Universe

There is an abundance of quality resources available to help teachers with this topic. It's a very exciting area of the curriculum but since it doesn't lend itself to experimental work, a good variety of activities is included here.

The Institute of Physics have a whole collection of videos that cover the big ideas as well as providing classroom activities - all HERE

Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment.
