Do you do Astronomy Star Spectra 2 together with Astronomy Star Spectra 1?

Chappie O'Hearn  (TpT Seller)
We use these two activities on separate days. Most students pick up on the concept of "the fingerprint of the elements" after completing Star Spectra 1. However, Spectra 2 deals with absorption spectra. While the idea is the same in 1 & 2, the mechanism of absorption spectra formation is a little different. Activity 2 allows the teacher an opportunity not only to touch on the formation of absorption spectra but also on their critical role in revealing the secrets of stellar evolution.

Hello - I purchased your Moon Phase practice part one and thought I read that there were 4 parts. I can't seem to find part 2. Also, do you sell them as a bundled unit? Or any bundled units??

Hi Chelsey, Thanks very much for your note. Each Moon Phase activity consists of 16 different practice stations, and there are 5 or 6 different Moon Phase activities. It is an important part of our philosophy to offer single/narrow topic lessons, so we don't offer any bundles. I hope you will give parts 4 or 5 a try, as I think they will challenge your students to visualize what's really going on with moon phases. Thanks again.

Dear Joan, Thanks for your note. Unfortunately we do not offer a metamorphic rock set. The meta rx have been a difficult group to develope an effective practice for. If you have any ideas, we would love to hear them. We have discussed and rough drafted some ideas, but never felt like they were good enough to share. Sorry! SurffDoggy

Zach Adler  (TpT Seller) re: Volcano Size part 1 SURFFDOGGY
Hello team surfdoggy!

I have purchased a large number of your activities and have found a recurring theme with many of them. While I understand the basics of what the activity is trying to accomplish the directions seem more anecdotal. It would be much more useful if there was a clear layout of how to use each item or a clear set of instructions. As a side note/question: is there any way that you could make or send me a map of the pacific northwest for the tornado/hurricane size models? I think it would help my kiddos have a better understanding.

Overall I love your lessons and activities, please keep creating new ones!

Thanks for your note Zach. Writing clear and effective instructions is a challenge we hope to accomplish, but realize we could often do better. I will work on a map of the Pacific Northwest, and forward it to you as soon as it is finished. ( An Oregon map has been added, and the revised document has been posted with notification to buyers. Hope you like it. Thanks again.)

Have you considered bundling any of your items as a unit? For example, all plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes items? Since several of your activities seem to be listed in separate parts, this would be a more efficient and cost-effective way for the purchaser to get all the parts.

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

Scienceisfun  (TpT Seller) re: Seasons and Tilted Planets SURFFDOGGY
Hi! I downloaded this activity (seasons 6) and I was wondering if you had an easy method for the kids to determine the number of hours of daylight at each station. Thanks!
April 18, 2010 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Chappie O'Hearn  (TpT Seller)
Seasons #6 is a challenging activity. Each planet has a different tilt and period of rotation. Only half of a planet is shown in each diagram, so each diagram represents half a rotation (half of a planetary day).
Let’s look at Station #5. This planet has a tilt of 21˚ and a period of rotation of 40 hours. So we know right away that if a full spin is 40 hours, then a half spin is 20 hours. Students have to estimate how many hours each point (A,B,C,D or E) will spend in daylight and in darkness during this half spin. For a non-tilted planet, daylight and darkness is evenly divided. However, that changes when a planet is tilted. Also, notice that even on a tilted planet, any point at the equator experiences equal hours of daylight & darkness. However, points N or S of the equator have different hours of daylight and darkness. In diagram #5, follow the path of point A (60˚ N latitude) as it rotates with the planet. Most of its path (3/4) is spent in darkness and less (1/4) in light (day). My estimate is that point A spends about 14 hrs in darkness and 6 hrs in daylight during this half spin. We need to double these numbers, since pt A has to rotate across the backside (unseen) of this planet also. So, pt A has 28 hrs of daylight and 12 hours of darkness each day. Now, point B will be different. Follow pt B (30˚ N latitude) as it rotates with the planet. Notice it spends a little more than half of its time in darkness. My estimate is 12 hrs of darkness and 8 hrs of daylight during a half spin. So double these numbers for a full spin (day), and pt B would spend 24 hrs in darkness and 16 hrs in daylight each day. Numbers in the southern hemisphere will be exactly opposite those in the northern hemisphere.
* Notice that 3 longitude lines/meridians run N-S to divide each diagram into four equal parts. Use these meridians to help estimate hours of daylight and darkness.
* We always allow student answers to be within a reasonable range (within 1 or 2 hr).
* This is activity #6 for a reason! It is challenging! We find that we always have some students who “just don’t get it”.
Thank you very much. You asked a very good question. And I hope this helps.

I have recently purchased quite a few of your products, and I am very happy with all of them. Your products are incredible. I do have a question though. I purchased both High and Low weather files and all of the moon phase activities from you. However, there are cetain things in them that I don't really need to teach my students, so my question is do you alos have these in a word file so that I can edit them to meet my needs? I totally understand if the answer is no, but figured I would ask?
