Abstract

Description

Introduction: Students observe colors in the flame of a burning candle to explore connections between matter, light, color, and temperature — basic concepts of matter and energy. They elaborate on these basic concepts in a new context of astronomy and stars. The second half of the activity investigates star colors and relative sizes.
