PowerPoint Presentation
IV. Procedures
IV. 1 Introductory Activity 1. The teacher will let the students watch a video entitled Perseid meteor
( 5 minutes) shower in 2015. After, the teacher will then utilize the inquiry-based approach
to generate the flow of the topic.
IV. 2 Activity 1. The teacher will engage the students in an activity.
( 5-10 minutes)
Activity: Luck in a Shooting Star!
Objectives:
a. familiarize the source of a meteor shower;
b. describe the occurrence of a meteor shower; and
c. discuss the source of some meteor showers through a quiz bowl.

Materials:
10 pcs. of bond paper strips
marker
Procedure:
1. The teacher will divide the class into 5 groups and each group will be
provided with 10 pcs. of bond paper strips and a marker.
2. 10-item multiple choice questions will be flashed in the screen and
each group will write the letter of their answer in the strips of bond
paper.
3. When the teacher will signal Time is up!, the answer of each group
will be raised and checking will follow.
4. Each question will have 1 point to have 10 points as the perfect score.

Luck in a Shooting Star!

shower seemm to
come from)

1. What is the name of the meteor shower that comes from the costellation
Perseu?
a. Draco b. Perseid c. Leonid d. Comet Halley
2. What is a meteor shower ?
a. a star b. light phenomenon c. smog in the atmosphere d. bulalakaw
3. What is the name of the meteor shower that comes from the constellation of
Draco and from the Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner.
a. Leonid b. Comet Halley c. Comet Encke d. Draconid
4. What is the source of meteoroid of the meteor shower Orionid?
a. Orion b. Comet Halley c. Gemini d. Comet Encke
5. Generally, there are three types of meteorites, EXCEPT:
a. stony b. stony-iron c. iron d. sulphuric-iron
6. What meteor shower that comes from the constellation Leo?
a. Comet Tempel-Tuttle b. Comet Encke c. Gemini d. Leonid
7. What meteor shower that comes from the constellation Taurus?
a. Taurid b. Comet Encke c. Leo d. Orionid
8. The meteor shower Geminid comes from the meteoroid_____________.
a. Asteroid 3200 Phaeton b. Comet Halley c. Gemini d. Perseus
9. Why do meteors in a meteor shower seem to come from one point in the sky?
a. because they are travelling in parallel paths with the same velocity.
b. because they are travelling in perpendicular paths with the same speed.
c. because they appear gradually in the sky.
d. because they travel in the same angle
10. There are how many meteorites in the Philippines that are accepted
internationally?
a. 1 b. 3 c. 5 d. 7
IV.3 Analysis 1. The teacher will elaborate the activity by asking the following questions:
( 5-10 Minutes) a. How was the activity?
b. What is a meteor shower?
c. Why does a meteor shower occur?
d. Why does it seem that meteors during a meteor shower appear to
come from only one point in the sky?
IV.4 Abstraction 1. The teacher will discuss further :
( 10-15 minutes) - The numbers of meteors that can be seen during a meteor shower vary.
It starts with the appearance of a few meteors per hour, increasing in
frequency until it reaches its peak of 1-2 meteors per minute, and then
declines.
The table below shows some of the more famous annual meteor showers
and the month when they reach their peak. The dates in the peak month vary
and astronomers make forecasts of the peak days (usually lasting for three days)
every year.

- Usually, the meteoroids that cause meteor showers come from comets,
but they may also come from an asteroid like in the case of the
Geminids. Earth passes through Asteroid3200 Phaethons orbit where
some fragments from the asteroid are found. Once these fragments
enter Earths atmosphere, they burn up. Meteoroids from comets
appear fuzzy because of the ice particles while those from asteroids are
clearer and distinct because they do not have these ice particles.
- It is a visual treat to see a meteor at night; more so if you get to see a
meteor shower. How much and how well you can see meteors in the
sky depend on several factors: air pollution; light pollution; the time of
day; weather conditions; size of the meteoroids; source of the
meteoroid (comet versus asteroid); and the chemical composition of
the meteoroid itself. It is harder to see them in cities where there are
many artificial light sources and where the air tend to be more
- polluted causing a smog or haze to block the light coming from
meteors).
- Meteor showers are easier to observe at night especially between
midnight up to around an hour before dawn.
- Meteorites are of importance to scientists in studying the occurrence of
different elements and compounds on Earth. This information is in turn
important in studying our mineral resources which is an important
industry in any country.
- Generally, there are three types: stony, stony-iron, and iron meteorites.
In the Philippines, there are only five meteorites that have been
accepted internationally.
- The elements and compounds enumerated in the table show that
meteorites are very rich in mineral resources. A comet or asteroid does
not only bring with it minerals from space but also causes the Earth
rocks found in these areas to change in chemical composition. The
presence of these meteorites and impact craters hold much potential
for the mining industry aside from being objects of scientific scrutiny.

IV.5 Application 1. The teacher will let the students share their experiences in witnessing a
( 8-10 minutes) meteor shower.
IV.6 Assessment 1. The teacher will conduct an assessment through paper and pen method.
( minutes) 2. The teacher will project the questions in the PowerPoint.

I. Instructions: Answer briefly but concisely in a crosswise.


1. What is a meteor shower?
2. Why does a meteor shower occur?
V. Remarks
VI. Reflection
VII. Assignment The teacher will let the students to ask elderly people about the superstitious
beliefs /practices about comets and asteroids.
