How Does the Sun Affect Earth? Unit 1 Key Concepts 6th Grade GEMS Space and Science Sequence
Unit 1.2 The Sun is a star.
Unit 1.2 Scientists use models to demonstrate ideas, explain observations, and make predictions.
Unit 1.2 The Sun is about 150,000,000 km away from Earth.
Unit 1.2 Only a tiny amount of all matter and energy that the Sun puts out comes toward Earth.
Unit 1.3 The visible light our eyes can detect is a part of a larger spectrum of electromagnetic energy.
Unit 1.3 The Sun radiates the full spectrum of electromagnetic energy.
Unit 1.3 The solar wind is a constant stream of charged particles that the Sun puts out.
Unit 1.4 Solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CME’s) occur during solar storms, when the Sun is active.
Unit 1.4 A solar flare releases large amounts of electromagnetic energies and solar particles into space.
Unit 1.4 A CME ejects particles and material from the Sun’s corona at high speeds into space.
Unit 1.4 Particles released by solar-storm events - such as solar flares and CME’s - travel much more quickly that particles in the solar wind.
Unit 1.4 The amount of particles and energy put out by the Sun is not constant.
Unit 1.4 Scientific explanations are based on evidence gathered from observations and investigations.
Unit 1.5 Sheilds at various altitudes prevent some solar energies from reaching Earth’s surface.
Unit 1.5 The magnetosphere sheilds Earth from solar particles at a very high altitude.
Unit 1.5 The changing shape of Earth’s magnetosphere during a solar storm can leave satellites and astronauts unshielded.
Unit 1.6 Everyone, especially those at high altitudes, should be concerned about ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.
Unit 1.6 Earth’s ozone layer shields us from some of the Sun’s ultraviolet energy.
Unit 1.7 Various materials can shield a person from UV radiation, but some shields are more effective than others.
Unit 1.8 We must all be concerned about bursts of energy from the Sun.

Chapter 29.1 Structure of the Sun Std 1e: Students know the Sun is a typical star and is powered by nuclear reactions, primarily the fusion of hydrogen.
The Sun What is the fate of our sun and other stars?
The Sun. How Old Is Our Sun? Stars like the Sun shine for nine to ten billion years The Sun is about 4.5 billion years old, judging by the age of moon.
The Sun: An Important Star The Suns Affects on the Earth The Sun is the only star in our solar system. It gives the energy needed by all the Earths.
Our Sun – Physical Properties. 109 Earths would fit across the diameter of the sun!! Diameter: 1,400,000 km, 864,000 miles 4.5 light-seconds 1,300,000.
Atmosphere Notes Drill: In the atmosphere, what happens to the temperature as we increase altitude (rise)? Why? Objective: SWBAT review concepts related.
The movement of heat in the atmosphere causes temperatures to change, winds to blow, and rain to fall.

24.1 The Study of Light Visible light from sun is only a small part of whats emitted Electromagnetic waves –Radio waves, IR, light, UV,
Chapter 17 The Atmosphere: Structure and Temperature.
Introduction: Transfer of Heat. Heat A form of energy associated with the motion of atoms or molecules. Transferred from higher temperature objects.
THE ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION Electromagnetic radiation can be described in terms of a stream of photons, which are massless particles each traveling in.
PHOTOSPHERE The lowest layer of the Suns atmosphere that is also the visible part we see.
Solar Energy and Weather Forecast for tonight: dark. - George Carlin A day without laughter is like a day without sunshine, and a day without sunshine.
Grade 8 Science Unit 2: Optics Chapter 4: Many properties of light can be understood using a wave model of light.
Bellringer What is the relationship between an object and the sound waves it creates during a sonic boom?
Video Field Trip: Fireball 1. How did scientists discover the activity of the sun’s core? 2. How do auroras occur?
Believe it or not, you are being “showered” all the time, not by rain but by waves. popcorn cell phone.
ATMOSPHERE: SECTION 1- EARTHS ATMOSPHERE. WHAT IS THE ATMOSPHERE MADE OF???? Mixture of : Gases Solids Liquids.
How do you LIGHT Up your world ? Virginia SOL 5.3 Part II-Examining Light with Hands-On Activities Compiled by, Marjorie Anne Wallace Elementary Science.
UV radiation By Andrew Coventry 10LC. Contents What is UV radiation? What is a tan? How does UV radiation tan the skin? What damage can UV do to the skin?
What Wavelength Was That? Mr Hemming Examining the Electromagnetic Spectrum with Hands-On Activities.
Chapter 2 Stars and Galaxies. Where are you? The Earth circles the sun The sun is one of billions of billions of stars. To measure distances between stars.
Chapter 13 Global Weather Dynamics. Weather Dynamics involves trying to understand why the clouds, air masses and water on the Earth are in constant motion.
EARTHS ATMOSPHERE. EARLY ATMOSPHERE PRODUCED BY ERUPTING VOLCANOES CONTAINED NITROGEN AND CARBON DIOXIDE EARLY ORGANISMS RELEASED OXYGEN.
ACTIVITY #14:Electromagnetic Waves and the Transfer of Energy The wind starts to pick up and the air temperature begins to drop. In the distance you see.
Objectives Explore the structure of the Sun. The Sun Describe the solar activity cycle and how the Sun affects Earth. Compare the different types of spectra.
