PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This study guide is a companion to the Wonders of the Sky Teaching Slides that are available in my TpT store. Along with this study guide, the slides offer a mini-course in atmospheric optical phenomena that highlights observable phenomena of the atmosphere and starry sky. The material can be taught in a discussion format, or students can access the Wonders of the Sky Teaching Slides on a computer and complete the study guides at their own pace.

The study guide provides a short answer format, and an optional objective answer format. The material can be taught in one go as a 3-5 day lab session, or it can be taught in increments over an extended period. The study guide provides both single and multiple packet handouts. Keys are included for both short answer and objective questions, as well as a crossword puzzle.
