Galileo Galilei


We will conclude this unit by a closer look at Galileo Galilei. Galileo was the first astronomer to examine the skies using a telescope. But his agreement with Copernicus regarding the Heliocentric theory of the Solar System brought him into conflict with the Roman Catholic Church. We will take notes from a short Powerpoint and watch the video below. Lastly, you will complete a unit crossword puzzle. Anyone who owes any work will have an opportunity to finish as well. There is also a study guide available below. You can use it for new points or as make-up work. Also keep an eye open for a link soon to a practice test you can try online.
