Learning about Black Holes today, included the additional tasks of taking good notes and converting them to text. The Seniors' writing task, after viewing a clip entitiled "Black Holes," required beginning with a good topic sentence and using a complex sentence. Do you think Madi has achieved this goal in this excerpt from her report?
A Black Hole is a region of space with its own gravitational force from which no matter can escape. They are impossible to see as they are invisible. Black Holes are created when a galaxy forms or when a huge star collapses and dies. In 2011, using infa red, X ray and radio wave technology, fifty eight people from six different countriesobserved a star being swallowed by a black hole. That was the first time that this had been captured on film. In the future, there will be more amazing observations of the darkest things in the universe, black holes.
