Our next science unit focuses on stars. We are so excited to be exploring the following science standards:
1. Explain that stars can be different; some are smaller, some are larger, and some appear brighter than others; all except the Sun are so far away that they look like points of light.
2. Identify the Sun as a star that emits energy; some of it in the form of light.
3. Recognize that the Sun appears large and bright because it is the closest star to Earth.
4. Investigate that the number of stars that can be seen through telescopes is dramatically greater than those seen by an unaided eye.
