The Curiosity Files™: Solar Max
Explorations With Professor Ana Lyze—Expert in Outlandish Oddities
A FUN unit study for kids ages 8 to 13
With The Curiosity Files™, children will become educated about subjects they’d never find otherwise. For example, did you know that a severe solar max could cause blackouts and traffic issues, as well as overload our power grid, affecting our ability to heat our homes and communicate? Did you know that a solar max lasts for 2½ years?
Solar Max will keep your children occupied and answering questions like these:
- Who first discovered the solar cycle?
- Do solar flares occur during a solar minimum or a solar maximum?
- What is the average cycle of the solar max?
- What two elements make up most of the sun?
- When did the strongest solar max on record take place?
- And a whole lot more!
With this unit, children will encounter The Write Stuff with grammar and writing activities. They can practice essay-writing skills by choosing an essay starter from the list or opt instead to write a book report. Plus, there are two levels of vocabulary lists and spelling worksheets: elementary and middle/high school. Using the solar max theme, they’ll study multiplication, practice math concepts to solve word problems, and write large ordinal numbers as words. They will also have the opportunity to expand their math knowledge by reviewing a math timeline and making a blackout kit.
Enjoy some homemade science instruments In the Lab by creating a Pinhole Camera and Sun Viewer or track time the old-school way by building your own Sundial. You’ll also find a Good Old Days history lesson on astronomy and the discovery of solar cycles, plus a geography lesson featuring the sun.
Get crafty by painting the night sky! Your super-artsy ones will be bubbling with creativity as they design their own sunspot on a necklace. Watch as the lesson comes alive for tactile learners and those with special needs through the hands-on activity designed with these children in mind. Professor Ana Lyze is an expert at bringing education to life through engaging puzzles, quizzes, games, and funtastic activities. Add to your Fact Files collection with Solar Max snippets. Begin by making a notebook or lapbook folder and continue adding on to widen the study with more amazing topics in this wonderful series.
As always, The Curiosity Files™ takes learning beyond the basic courses of study and engages your child’s heart as well.
