Changing Perspectives on the Sun's Diameter

In this sun's diameter instructional activity, students use a photograph taken by the SOHO satellite of the sun showing a change in diameter from one month to another. Students find the average diameter of the sun, they determine the percent change in the diameter and they find the change in the distance of the sun to the Earth between June to January.

Lesson Planet has saved me so much time and grief trying to find fantastic resources for my classroom. I recently switched grade levels and I'm building up my digital resources. I always find quality lesson plans when I visit the site.
