Product Description

Sun layers group card sorting activity plus graphic organizer with follow-up questions, and PowerPoint for direct instruction notes.

Are your students struggling to identify the layers of the Sun? Or do you need an awesome lesson for your next observation? I've used this activity in both situations, and students (and administrators) love it!

This activity can be used to help students review the layers of the Sun, or it can be used as direct instruction with the included PowerPoint and graphic organizer handout. Use it to introduce the layers/structure of the Sun, or supplement the included PowerPoint. Since all of the prep work is done for you, the hardest decision you will have to make is how to use this product in your classroom!

Here is what's included:

  • 3 BIG category cards: Sun's Interior, Sun's Atmosphere, and Features on the Sun
  • 9 smaller cards that go below each category: core, convection zone, radiation zone, photosphere, chromosphere, corona, sunspots, prominences, and solar flares
  • 9 description cards (with small images)
  • 9 picture cards (that go with descriptions)
  • Student worksheet in the form of a graphic organizer. Students can use this with the activity or for direct instruction
  • Student follow-up questions
  • Teacher PowerPoint with 36 slides. Beginning slides provide instructions for students to complete activity. The remainder of the slides are for direct instruction.
  • Answer Keys

How to prep:

  • Copy all 'cards' onto card stock; color ink is recommended. Cut. I always make one set of cards for every four students.
  • Copy handouts for each student (double-sided with questions on the back)
  • Adjust PowerPoint to match the needs of your students.
  • ALL items can be modified! Feel free to change the difficulty of the questions, or modify the cards.
  • Enjoy!

I use this for 8th grade science, but it can easily be used across all middle school grade levels and even some high school classes. ALL items are Word and PowerPoint based, so they can easily be modified to match the needs of your students, and your teaching goals.

Since every classroom is different, please contact me with any questions. My goal is to help you provide fun, and meaningful learning opportunities for your students!

Thank you,
