Forces Within A Star - Fe [26] Game

Resource:
Forces Within A Star - Fe [26] Game

Students will collect data using a game/simulation to better understand how nuclear fusion results in the release of energy and the formation of new elements, as well as why the lifespan of a high-mass star is much shorter than the lifespan of a low-mass star.

Gravity Investigation

Resource:
Gravity Investigation

This activity around the concept of gravity will support students in developing an understanding of the big ideas in the Life Cycle of a Star, Structure of the Solar System, and Orbital Motion of Celestial Objects 5E Plans. It also provides an option for having students begin to develop their capacity for constructing scientific explanations, a skill that is crucial for sensemaking throughout this course and in the realm of science.

Investigating Plate Boundaries

Resource:
Investigating Plate Boundaries

Students use an online simulation to explore different types of plate boundaries and landforms created at plate boundaries.

Star in a Box

Resource:
Star in a Box

Students make observations from online simulators in order to learn about the relationship between age and mass, mass of a new star and lifespan, and the stages of a star life cycles.

Waves, Redshift, and Blueshift (Doppler Effect)

Resource:
Waves, Redshift, and Blueshift (Doppler Effect)

Students explore the evolution of the universe through simulator activities designed with the intention of making sure that all students have a deep understanding of basic wave concepts that is necessary in order to explain redshift and blueshift (Doppler effect).
