8.8a Use models such as the Herztsprung-Russell diagram for classification

Klassroom

HighTe High Temperatures Low Temperatures Step 1: Explain Temperature and Luminosity Scales on classroom walls

Low Luminosity High LuminosityStep 2: Give each student a colored star. Explain how they plot their star. Low Temperatures HighTemperatures

Low Luminosity High Luminosity

High Temperatures Low Temperatures Step 3: Have students move around to plot their star. Stop and tell those that are correct to stand still and then have those that are not correct to try again.

Step 4: After everyone is in place discuss temperatures and luminosities. Locate Sun.R Red Giants and Super Giants SUN (Very BrightBlue Giants Not so Hot)(Very Hot and Very Bright) Main Sequence Stars (Medium Temperatures and Brightness)

White Dwarfs (Really Hot Not so Bright)

Converge--4 steps back towards your shoulder partner

Transform-- Left 2 steps forward then 2 backRight 2 steps back then 2 forward.

Subduct-- Line on right hold up arm and left line goes underneath to switch places.

Tectonic ShuffleDown down In the earthIn the earthIn the earth 4x

When the plates diverge They make new ocean floor When the plates divergeThey make new ocean floor When the plates transformThey cause the earth to quakeWhen the plates subductthey leave volcanoes in their wake

Got a brand new danceGotta move your muscleA brand new danceIts called tectonic shuffleWegner said that the platesMoved slow----We gonna show you how it goes

Periodic Cake Walk8.5C Interpret the arrangement of the Periodic Table, including groups and periods, to explain how properties are used to classify elements.SkipAFewDraw this piece of thePeriodic Table out on a concrete area using chalk.Give each student a whiteboard and a marker.Play some music and havestudents walk around the outside of the drawing.When the music stops have them go to a square and then ask themquestions such as How many valence electrons? Metals or non-metals?Kinesthetic Ideas OnlineKinesthetic astronomyhttp://solarsystem.nasa.gov/docs/Sky_Time.pdf
