Solar Center at Stanford – Educators

Here you will find a collection of multi-disciplinary, interactive exercises and activities based on the Sun and solar science, most geared to grades 4-12. Most of these have been aligned to science standards and approved by the NASA Product Review process.

The Solar Center explains sunrise-sunset, folklore and art about the sun around the world, magnetic fields and simulations of the sun’s interior where no instruments can go. Its section about folklore tells sun stories all over the world. Activities, a scavenger hunt and Q&A space for expert scientists to respond to student queries can also be found at this excellent site.
