View Resource Discover the Solar Cycle/ HESSI Lithograph

This lesson allows students plot the percentage of high energy, x-ray solar flares over several years to discover that the solar cycle of sunspot activity is also a cycle of solar flares.

View Resource Exploring Magnetism in Solar Flares: A Teachers' Magnetism Activity Guide for Grades 8-12

Exploring Magnetism in Solar Flares is part of a series of guides highlighting the importance of magnetism in Earth and space sciences. It contains four activities exploring solar flares while addressing science, math, and literacy standards. The material is appropriate for grades 8-12. Lessons are available for download in PDF format.

View Resource Solar Flare Theory

This site from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center offers information related to solar flares. It discusses what a solar flare is, why they are important, and the study of solar flares in hard x-ray. There are many pictures, animations and links to other sites. Activities that may be used in the classroom are also included.

View Resource The Sun

The first of four linked files, created by David P. Stern, giving a very brief and elementary overview of sunspots, flares and coronal mass ejections, including some early history and the articles by Schwabe (1843) and Carrington (1859). The page also provides an index of additional sites created by Stern to facilitate further study on this topic. The is simply an article in a much larger site...

View Resource Solar Physics: The Big Questions

This site describes unanswered questions about the sun. These include the coronal heating process, the nature of solar flares, the origin of the sunspot cycle, and missing neutrinos. In each case the problem is stated along with what is known to date. The text includes links to further information.
