Day Two of Plaid Pete's Star Lab

Objective: SWBAT support an argument that differences in the apparent brightness of the sun compared to other stars is due to their relative distances from Earth.

Big Idea: How is the brightness of a star measured? Students sort data to discover patterns between magnitude and distance of various stars from Earth, and use Data Analysis Cards to interpret and communicate their data.
