The Sun

Join Simple Schooling as we take a trip through the Solar System.  The Sun is the first stop on our itinerary before we blast off into the inner planets.  In this unit geared specifically for grades 5-8 and students will learn about the sun's composition, the layers of the sun, the star life cycle, how stars are classified, how they create life on Earth, and a bit about our place in the galaxy.

The Sun is the first in a 10 week study on our solar system.
