Sun's Layers

Sun's Layers

Suns Layers Create a Circle Map on page: 130 Create map with "Sun Layers" in the center. Prior knowledge in BLACK. Using the two websites: Research the Sun's layers and place information for each layer in their circle maps in the established colors. For Example: Core-Blue/Radiation-Pink/

The Photosphere Sunspot: Solar Flare: Prominence: Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org Sunspots They are found on the Photosphere Due to the difference in temperature Caused by convection currents

Usually go in an 11 year activity cycle Appear dark because of the temperature difference A cooler than the rest of the surface Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org Solar Flare They exit out of the Photosphere Release of radiation from the Suns surface Explodes directly outward from the Sun Causes Solar wind A Burst of radiation that is invisible and travels

outward from the Sun Happens due to a weak area in the Suns magnetic field on the surface that break for an instance and allows radiation to come Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org through Prominence They are found on the Photosphere Loops of gas that exit the Sun and are pulled back into the

Use their circle map to complete the flaps on layers in the foldable (Minimum of 4). Use the knowledge gained in the PowerPoint to complete the center bottom three sections on features (Minimum of 4). Complete the center model of the Sun.

Label each layer Draw AND color each feature of the Sun Critically think on their own (without using notes or resources) about the three critical thinking questions. Answered on Page 131 Foldable Format Front Format

Inside Format Suns Layers & Features Critical Thinking Questions: Copy & Answer on pg. 131 1. What would happen to temperature on Mercury during the day if a sunspot was directly in line with its surface? 2. How would a photon's travel (physical path) differ as it traveled through the different layers of the Sun?

3. What is the difference between a solar flare and a prominence? Give a written explanation AND draw a diagram of each.
