Children and the Sun

This section is designed for educators and students to learn more about our dynamic Sun and space weather and how these topics can be used in the classroom and outreach events. Try your hand at some of the questions in the Questions & Answers section. Briefs & Reports and the Glossary has more information to help you out.

The Solarscapes curriculum allows middle school students to explore the physical nature of Sun cycles, especially identifying solar features and plotting sunspots. This standards-based curriculum, which was designed to enhance the Space Science Institute's traveling exhibition, Electric Space, is available to download. You can also download the Family Guide to the Sun and view two PowerPoint presentations and Online Resources.
