Educator/Group Leader Information: The Sun as a Star
Activities associated with this theme are designed to introduce the Sun to participants before going on to more specific topics on subsequent days. The "Sun as a Star" area contains a basic description of the Sun, while the "Stellar Fingerprinting" area describes how we classify stars in general, and the "Solar Facts" page gives vital statistics of the Sun—information that will be useful when playing the game. All these activities concentrate on some particular property of the Sun which might be new to you and your participants; each activity has its own set of leader notes.
