Comment on this resource
In this lesson, students read and discuss articles presenting two alternative theories about the extinction of dinosaurs. They are encouraged to use the criteria that scientists use to get the best solution. Students will learn that: some evolutionary change is rapid and discontinuous; extinction plays in role in macroevolution; and scientists use specific criteria in deciding which theory is better. ...

The Ceratosauria represent the earliest theropod dinosaurs and indeed may include the ancestor to all later theropods. This site discusses the overall morphology and then goes into more detail for three examples: Ceratosaurus nasicornis, Dilophosaurus wetherilli, and Segisaurus halli. Full description.

This lesson plan presents an introduction to the apparent motion of the Sun across the sky and the way it changes in summer and winter. The goals of the lesson are to recognize the daily motion of the Sun across the sky, defining the main directions of east, west, south and north. The student will also recognize that the locations of sunrise and sunset (for viewers north of the equator) migrate southward ... Full description.

This lesson provides an introduction (or refresher) of the concept of graphs in Cartesian coordinates, starting with graphs of a straight line and a simple parabola. It is part of a high school course on astronomy, Newtonian mechanics and spaceflight. The implicit relationship x2+y2 = R2 for a circle is given, and from that the Cartesian equation of an ellipse is developed. Students will learn or ... Full description.

This lesson introduces students to electromagnetic waves, the concept of photons, and the relation between photon wavelength and energy. This is tied to solar observations at various wavelengths using the many types of electromagnetic waves. Students will discover that electromagnetic waves are a linked oscillation of magnetic fields and electric currents, spreading through space. They will also discover ... Full description.

This lesson discusses the Sun's corona, observed from spacecraft in the extreme ultra violet (EUV) and in x-rays, including coronal holes and coronal mass ejections (CME), their effect near Earth and their monitoring from space. This section also discusses related phenomena in interplanetary space and on Earth and contains an optional class exercise in which students learn about field line preservation ... Full description.

This lesson has students explore how the scientific process helps develop our understanding of the natural world. They will explore how science is viewed by the general public versus practicing scientists and will examine actual field research via video clips. In the first activity, A Survey about Science, students will conduct a survey about the nature of science, evolution, and scientific laws, ... Full description.
