What is a solar eclipse?
How the Game Works
You will be divided into 2 teams and each team together will answer 28 questions
If you're stuck on a question, your team may spin the spinner which may provide a hint to answer your question
Thank you for participating and watching our presentation!
By: Wilson, Longco, Natalie, Kristy
How does this happen?
This phenomenon occurs whenever there is a new moon and the Moon is positioned between Earth and the Sun
Why does this happen?
A solar eclipse is an eclipse in which the Moon overshadows the Sun
Due to the fact the Moon and Sun appear to be the same size, the two align and create a Solar Eclipse
In reality, the Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon and in addition, the Sun is also about 400x farther away from Earth than the Moon
Total eclipses can range from about 5 seconds to just over 7 minutes long!
DID YOU KNOW?
Sometimes the Moon will completely cover the Sun during a total solar eclipse, leaving only the outer atmosphere of the Sun, called the corona, visible
There will be a small avatar for both teams to indicate which question is focused upon
Every question that is answered correctly is worth a colored stamp while each question answered incorrectly is worth none
What are tides?
The rising and falling of large bodies of water
What causes tides?
Gravitational interaction between the Sun and Moon on Earth.
When the Sun and Moon are perpendicular to each other with respect to Earth
During the first and third quarter moon phases
Twice in each day
When do Neap Tides occur?
When the Sun, Moon and Earth form a straight line and the gravitational pull on Earth is strong
During the new and full moon phases
Twice in each day
When do Spring Tides occur?
What is gravity?
A force that pulls all objects toward the center of the Earth
What is Newton's law of universal gravitation?
"Two objects exert a gravitational force of attraction on each other"
To go around the orbit and answer correctly all 28 questions to receive the maximum number of points
The team with the most stamps wins!
However! A team may only use the spinner once
Science Probe 9 Textbook
Physics 11 Textbook
A stamp collector is provided for each team to record the number of stamps
Remember those facts we've educated into you?
It's time to show your learning!
1. What is Newton's law of universal gravitation?
2. When does a solar eclipse occur?
a) Velocity of an object remains constant until a force acts upon the object
b) All objects are attracted to each other
c) Gravity pulls everything down
d) Both A and C
3. When do Neap Tides occur?
a) When the Sun and Moon are perpendicular to each other with respect to Earth as they are during the first and third quarter moon phases
b) When the Sun, Moon and Earth form a straight line
c) Twice in each day
d) a) and c) are correct
a) During a new moon, when the Moon is directly between Earth and the Sun
b) New Years
d) When the Sun is between Earth and the Moon
b) A movie
c) Force that pulls all objects toward the center of the Earth
d) Oxygen gas
4. What is gravity?
Why does the Sun and Moon appear to be the same size in the sky?
a) The Sun is approx 400x larger than the Moon and approx 400x farther away from Earth than the Moon
b) They just do
c) The Sun is farther
d) All of the above
6. Spring tides are more common during the spring.
a) When the Sun and the Moon are perpendicular to each other with respect to Earth
b) During the new and full moon phases when the Sun, Moon and Earth are in a line and the gravitational pull on Earth is strong
d) During Spring
7. When do spring tides occur?
8. Why are solar eclipses important to astronomers?
a) It improves our knowledge of Outer Space
b) Astronomers can safely study bursts of gases from the Sun
c) To experience this phenomenon without damaging their eyes
d) All of the above
9. What causes tides?
a) Gravitational interaction between Earth and Moon.
c) The rotation of the core in the center of Earth
d) Drifting of tectonic plates
a) Rising and falling of large bodies of water
b) A smaller version of a Tsunami
c) A laundry detergent
d) A laundry detergent better than Sunlight
