Black Hole - What Next

Great video short. I've edited and you just need to pause and then ask the students - What Will Happen Next? Points for each correct guess! Then continue and pause again. Fascinating story.

Get the worksheet and video.

That is a great short film and easy to imagine how to use in class.  A worksheet that introduces some phrases to the students so they'll know how to respond would be quite useful, e.g., "The man will reach his hand inside the whole.  The man will print up more copies.  Etc."  Of course there are other simpler phrases, but providing some scaffolding to help the students come up with the answers might be helpful.  Do you happen to have any worksheets or tips for doing this activity in class?

That should have said "hole" not "whole."

No worksheets but I'll add to my to do list and see what I can come up with. 

Might be good as some of these "what will happen next" lessons do - to have for each prediction 3 possible outcomes (1 true, 2 possible but not true). Students vote for the correct one and then watch to see if they guessed right.

Dear Ddeubel:

...a bit like 'choose your own adventure.'  It's too bad you can't run with that idea.

The worksheets would be good for lower level students and if there were level-dependent versions of the worksheets they would be usable with higher level students as well.  I'm not asking for worksheets.  I'm just sharing what I might do.  It is a great video - with a bit of "You get what you deserve," at the end.  Thanks again for sharing it.

Joshua,  didn't take it that way.  Just I still get excited about making materials for great videos like this and you prompted me to think a little.... I'm sure a lot of other ways to use this very malleable story...
