    WEEK3

    April 13th - 17th

    Standard(s):  

    ALL CLASSES- SC.8.E.5.6 Create models of solar properties including: rotation, structure of the Sun, convection, sunspots, solar flares, and prominences. 

    ADV Classes only- SC.8.E.5.7 Compare and contrast the properties of objects in the Solar System including the Sun, planets, and moons to those of Earth, such as gravitational force, distance from the Sun, speed, movement, temperature and atmospheric conditions.

    Learning Goal(s): 

    You will be able to demonstrate your understanding of the structure of the Sun through notetaking and/or question and response. You will be able to identify common Sun features including: areas of convection, sunspots, solar flares, and prominences. You will be able to apply this knowledge to label a model of the Sun on the next test

    ADV Classes ONLY- You will be able to compare and contrast the properties of objects in the Solar System in table format (next week).

    April 6th - 10th

    6th Grade Earth and Space Science

    Standard(s):  

    SC.6.N.2.3 Recognize that scientists who make contributions to scientific knowledge come from all kinds of backgrounds and possess varied talents, interests, and goals. 

    SC.8.E.5.4 Explore the Law of Universal Gravitation by explaining the role that gravity plays in the formation of planets, stars, and solar systems and in determining their motions. (FOCUS OF ZOOM MEETINGS)

    Learning Goal(s): 

    1. You will be able to recognize that many scientists made contributions to the solar system model. As contributions were made and new evidence discovered, our understanding of the solar system changed.
