These lessons are geared for younger students. Many lessons will, however, include activities for the older student. Parents/teachers will easily find the answers to questions in the text, and should prepare themselves by reading the stated pages prior to having the student read the weekly assignment. If a child is not able to read yet, parents may wish to read the text to the student.
The concepts presented in the section “Seeing Distant Objects in a Young Universe” may be too difficult for younger students. Below are a few Web articles that describe this concept. Also, an excellent resource for those who want to pursue this further is Starlight and Time by Dr Russell Humphreys.
Please look at the “How can we see light from stars millions of light years away?” section on the Get Answers: Astronomy page for more articles.
NOTE: Parents/teachers may wish to read these articles and summarize them for younger students.
