The purpose of this lesson, from Science NetLinks, is to introduce students to our local star, the Sun, especially its structure and its features such as sun spots, magnetic fields, and solar flares. By focusing on physical characteristics of the sun, this lesson gives students a general understanding of what a star is, which can be the basis of understanding the general make-up of other stars in far off galaxies.
