Through an inquiry activity, students develop an understanding of the dynamic and variable nature of the Sun by comparing and contrasting images. Students work in small groups to explore images that vary with respect to time, scale, or technology. Students identify the similarities and differences between images and share their findings with peers. The class discusses the implications of the Sun as a variable force of nature and brainstorms a list of questions that have been raised by the comparison of images. During the following class period, the instructor facilitates a PowerPoint presentation to further student under­standing of the dynamic processes of our Sun and offer explanations to student questions.
