HS-ESS1-1Develop 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.
HS-ESS1-3 Communicate scientific ideas about the way stars, over their life cycle, produce elements.
Students create a timeline to model the life span of the sun. This includes bell ringers, graphic organizers, project instructions, pacing guides, and rubric for the model. Additional sources are cited for excellent movies and articles.
