How to review withOUT drill and kill: Logic Line-Ups. I use this Logic Line-Up in my Science classes to review Stellar Evolution of a 1-solar mass star like the Sun (yellow dwarf, red giant, white dwarf, and nebula)
Develop your students' thinking skills with hands-on cooperative logic activities. You copy the provided picture cards. They work in teams to figure out how to use the clues to line up their cards in the correct order. Build your students' deductive thinking skills, spatial reasoning, and vocabulary. They'll learn technology, and teamwork skills with these ready-to-use, logic activities. You'll find problems, answers and reproducible, line-up cards.
These Logic Line-Ups have been classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science Benchmarks: SWBAT
SC.8.E.5.5 Describe and classify specific physical properties of stars: apparent magnitude (brightness), temperature (color), size, and luminosity (absolute brightness).
SC.8.E.5.6 Create models of solar properties including: rotation, structure of the Sun, convection, sunspots, solar flares, and prominences.
SC.8.P.9.2 Differentiate between physical changes and chemical changes
SC.8.L.18.2 Describe and investigate how cellular respiration breaks down food to provide energy and releases carbon dioxide.
SC.912.E.5.3 Describe and predict how the initial mass of a star determines its evolution.
SC.912.P.10.11 Explain and compare nuclear reactions (radioactive decay, fission and fusion), the energy changes associated with them and their associated safety issues.
SC.912.P.10.12 Differentiate between chemical and nuclear reactions.
NGSS. HS-ESS1-1 Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.
