|Subject Area||Comprehensive Science III|
|Unit of Instruction||Scale of the Universe and Gravity|
SC.8.E.5.2 Recognize that the universe contains many billions of galaxies and that each galaxy contains many billions of stars.
SC.8.E.5.4 Explore the Law of Universal Gravitation by explaining the role that gravity plays in the formation of planets, stars, and solar systems and in determining their motions.
SC.8.P.8.2 Differentiate between weight and mass recognizing that weight is the amount of gravitational pull on an object and is distinct from, though proportional to, mass.
SC.8.E.5.5 Describe and classify specific physical properties of stars: apparent magnitude (brightness), temperature (color), size, and luminosity (absolute brightness).
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
• recognize that the universe contains billions of galaxies and stars

o NOS Focus- Scientific Processes with observations and inferences
• describe the physical properties of main sequence stars, including: o apparent magnitude (brightness), temperature (color), size, and absolute magnitude (brightness)
