Students working in pairs or in small groups will predict how to make a rainbow using the materials they are given, then compare the rainbows that they produce with other groups of students and identify and record the colors that they see. They should also draw diagrams that show how a prism separates the colors of light. Alternative methods to demonstrate the separation of white light into the color ... Full description.

This classroom project will compare and contrast three NASA satellites: The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE), The Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE), and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The lesson includes access to data and images from these three satellites, contrasting the way the sky appears in three very different electromagnetic wavelengths or colors of light. Other satellite information ... Full description.

This tour of auroral phenomena utilizes research images and taped interviews with scientists. Diagrams and text provide background on qualitative magneto-dynamics, and locations of auroral zones on the Earth. Variations in color are used to introduce ideas about spectroscopy. This activity will familiarize students with auroral phenomena and where they appear on the Earth's surface, relate auroras ... Full description.

In this activity, students investigate the presence of magnetic fields around magnets, the sun and the earth. They will explore magnetic field lines, understand that magnetic lines of force show the strength and direction of magnetic fields, determine how field lines interact between attracting and repelling magnetic poles, and discover that the earth and sun have magnetic properties. They will also ... Full description.

In this activity students investigate the role of the Ultraviolet Imager on the Image for Magnetopause-to-Auroral Global Exploration (IMAGE) satellite. They will experiment with color filters and discover that the sun's light can be broken into many colors through the use of a spectrograph. They will also learn that certain wavelengths of energy are not visible to our eyes, and that highly specialized ... Full description.

By performing various activities to model the magnetic fields around the sun, students will gain an understanding of how the restructuring of these magnetic fields can cause a variety of seemingly unrelated shapes and phenomena. They will discover how changes in this magnetic field cause phenomena like coronal mass ejections, filaments, sunspots, and magnetic loops. Students will also examine images ... Full description.

In this activity, students will discover the magnifying power of a lens and experience how scientists make modifications to these simple instruments in order to get the data they want. They will see that water, bottles, and jars can act as magnifiers, construct their own telescope, and explore why scientists develop new instruments to learn more about the world. Full description.

Our Sun is an ordinary star; however, as our own star, it holds special status for us and is essential to our existence. The Sun's gravity holds the solar system together, and nuclear fusion within the Sun supplies the energy for life on Earth. Without the Sun, Earth would be a drastically different place. This video segment presents some basic facts about our Sun. Topics include its size and heat ... Full description.
