If you are teaching about AURORAS you are in luck! This bundle of resources includes a lesson plan, PowerPoint, student notes, practice questions and formative assessment pieces – which are completely editable. This lesson bundle also includes a scientific art activity! I’m sharing my love of Astronomy with you, in hopes that your students will love it too!
Student learning goals for the Aurora Lesson:
• explore different cultures’ explanation of the auroras
• sequence the production of the auroras beginning with the Sun
• identify features of Earth that contribute to the formation of auroras
Please examine the images and preview above to see how this resource can help you and your students.
In the zipped file, you will receive:
★ 2-page lesson plan (PDF and editable Microsoft Word).
★ 12-slide editable PowerPoint presentation with hyperlinks to YouTube videos.
★ 4-page editable student notes (PDF and editable Microsoft Word) that coordinate with the PowerPoint in a fill-in-the-blank style, that includes 6 homework/practice questions. A teacher version with blanks filled in is also provided in both file types.

MOST RESOURCES ARE EDITABLE except the Art Activity Guide, where I’ve had to lock clip art for copyright reasons.
