Description:

The Cosmic Survey allows teachers to gauge students' knowledge of astronomy and astrophysics by exploring their ideas of 'How far? How big? How old?' for various stellar bodies. In this activity, a three-part questionnaire launches students on discussions about where objects in space are located, and when they formed, providing an introduction to the concepts of structure and evolution of the universe. By physically manipulating images of objects in space, students represent their own mental models of space and time. Answers are provided for the survey questions, which provide a way to gauge student misconceptions.
