Description:

This activity features real images of comets and challenges students to identify the different types of comet tails shown.

Students can also complete this activity after using teacher-provided materials to learn about comet composition and tails. Students can complete this activity independently or in small groups. Detailed teacher pages, identified as Teaching Tips on the title page of Comets, provide science background information, lesson plan ideas, related resources, and alignment with national education standards. This activity is part of the online exploration Comets on the Amazing Space website.
