Plotting the HR DIAGRAM.

These resources are great for plotting the HR Diagram with your students.

The students will need a set of HR Diagram Circles per group. These take a long time to cut out. In addition to this your students will need the HR Diagram handout which has lots of great questions on it.

The answers to the handout are in the answers document below along with the teacher lesson guide.

I use 2x poster paper sticky taped together for the board and draw on the axis using the teacher notes.
