This sun video lesson with handout is a great way to introduce your students to facts and concepts about the sun. The video scribe format engages students, bringing a live look to the text and graphics being presented. This interactive sun lesson includes background music too!
Students will learn many facts about the sun, and organize their information on a half page worksheet that can be used in an interactive notebook format. The worksheet allows students to record the information easily as they watch the video. Some of the topics covered in the lesson are:
What is the sun?
What is the sun made of?
Why does the sun look larger than other stars?
How far away is the sun?
How long does it take sunlight to reach the Earth?
How hot is the sun?
How large is the sun?
A cover page has been included so the students can make a two page mini book about the sun. Fun graphics are included throughout the lesson and the worksheet. An answer key is also included.
The video lesson is in MP4 format, so you can show it using most video players found on your computer (Quicktime, Windows Media Player, iTunes, etc.). You can pause the video at any time to discuss questions or to give your students time to record their information. The video is 10 minutes and 19 seconds in length.
I pass out the worksheet first and have my students discuss the questions with their partner. I usually show the video portion of the sun lesson two times. This lesson is a valuable introduction to further studies about the sun and the solar system.
