. Briefly describe the engineering design steps.What causes earth’s seasons? The following questions are about the far side of the moon: 1) What does it look like? Why? 2) Why do we never see it from earth? 3) Now that we have a photograph of the far side. what can we tell about the volcanic activity from the past of the far side of the moon? Describe the life cycle of a star that is double the mass of our sun.

. night time hours are ____less____ than daytime hours because of the ______tilt______ of the earth. and brighter than our sun (bluish-white color) . Where are the rocky (terrestrial) planets located in what region of the solar system? Inner solar system (outer are gas) Binary star systemMake up 50% of the star systems in the galaxy.High tides that are lower than usual and low tides that are higher than usual.larger.core (innermost). Space. hotter. neither subduct and mountains form What are lunar highlands made of? __________crystalized magma____________________ What is the main element/component of a nebula? ___Hydrogen____________________ In Springfield.made up of nonliving things Lithospheric made of earth’s upper mantle and crust Identify the three (3) layer of the moon. and crust What happens if to continental plates collide?

Kiley 2015-2016 Earth. Ma. Two stars orbit each other Blue giant.

lowest temperature of any layer of the sun but is responsible for visible light (easiest to see) Contour lines.are smaller than (CME) coronal mass ejections. Red shift shows objects moving ___away _____ . usually happen during solar maximum.Spiral galaxies have more __star____ forming regions than elliptical galaxies.a shift in the way the absorption lines (color) explain a moving star.while blue shift shows objects moving ___closer ____. and changes in elevation? . Doppler effect. near sunspots. can be 100 million degrees Kelvin and release the same energy as millions of volcanic eruptions. Photosphere.show change in elevation Can you interpret a topographic map? “Read” the contour lines and identify the highest. lowest. Solar flares. Venus’s and Earth’s atmosphere both contain ___Carbon Dioxide (CO2) ____________.

Concepts/Short Answer/Open Response: How does the sun’s appearance change during a solar eclipse? At the beginning it appears as though a bite has been taken off the sun as the moon moves between Earth and the sun. The bite grows larger. spiral galaxy stars orbit in the same direction while elliptical galaxy stars orbit in different directions. taking over the whole of the sun’s disk. The sky gets dark during a few minutes of totality. Also. heliocentric model has the sun as the center of the solar system. The sun’s corona becomes visible. Then goes in reverse. sizes. How are the geocentric and heliocentric models of the solar system (a) similar? (b) different? (a)Both have orbits around a center (b)Geocentric is the earth as the center of the solar system. Contrast spiral and elliptical galaxies: Shape. and elliptical galaxies have few star forming regions than spiral. When the moon is going to have a total eclipse: 1) What is the name of the stage the moon goes through just before a total lunar eclipse? Penumbral and/or partial stages 2) What is the phase of the moon during a total eclipse? Full moon 3) What does a total lunar eclipse look like from earth? Dark red color .

Divergent 3. what can we tell about the volcanic activity from the past of the far side of the moon? Not much maria ( formed by volcanoes) because there was not as much volcanic activity as on other parts of the moon and/or impacts have covered evidence of lava flows Describe the life cycle of a star that is double the mass of our sun. scatter debris and tiny dense neutron star. collapse into supernova explosion. turn into supergiant.What are the three ways plates move? Sketch and label or use science vocabulary 1. Convergent 2. Transform-Fault Come together Drift apart Slip past each other What causes earth’s seasons? Earth’s tilt The following questions are about the far side of the moon: 1) What does it look like? Why? Covered in impact breccia/craters because of collisions with asteroids/meteors 2) Why do we never see it from earth? Moon has the same rotation and revolution so we always see the same side 3) Now that we have a photograph of the far side. . Run out of hydrogen.
