HW - Life Cycle of a Star

For weekend homework, read the text, view the images and watch all videos on the Stellar Life Cycle page below. We will investigate the life cycle of a star and this site gives a preview of what is to come.

The Life Cycle of Stars

In your science notebook, 1) explain what fusion is and what the reaction looks like written out; 2) draw the Life Cycle of a Star; and 3) think about red shift and blue shift from last week--draw the visible light range from the Electromagnetic Spectrum (ESRT p. 14) and put arrows where you will see blue shift and red shift.

HW - What is the Big Bang?

For tomorrow's class and the next two to three days, we will investigate the Big Bang theory. In the link below, you will find information explaining the Big Bang. Read all the text, review all images or graphics and watch all videos.  Also, this page will be useful for studying for the unit test.

Information on the Big Bang

In your science notebook, use a Facts-Questions-Response (FQR) table to 1) identify ideas that you learned about on the page above (facts), 2) wonderings that you now have because of what you've read or seen (questions), and 3) reflect on your new knowledge based on the page of Big Bang information (response). Jot down the vocabulary words and a definition from the text. Be prepared to discuss aspects of the page in class tomorrow.

Welcome to Earth Science class!

Dear Earth Science student,

Stop here for HW. All homework will be posted here. And these homework assignments will be useful for review purposes when it comes time for tests or quizzes.
I will post videos that I show in class here, so if you're absent or you want to review, you will be able to catch up on what you missed.
If absent, you'll find links here to the work.

Ms. Stewart
