I don’t know what it is about black holes but children always love to learn all about Black Holes, they are mysterious and dangerous so I think that’s why they are so appealing. Mind you, after our exciting space session they know not to go too close to one them in their space rockets or they won’t be coming home for dinner!
All the children had a lot of fun and they did lots of wonderful drawings, please see some of them below :-)
Please find below some excellent NASA links to children’s teaching resources:
Photo of a real Black Hole…now how did they do that!!!
