Montessori Stellar Nucleosynthesis Cards – Life Cycle of a Star
These cards are designed to be used alongside felt circles (not included) for the presentation of stellar nucleosynthesis following the first great lesson in Montessori upper elementary classrooms. The lesson provides a detailed presentation of the life cycle of a star, describing the fusion of atoms and creation of new elements during each stage.
The cards are colour coded to match the felt circles and a periodic table for each element is provided to demonstrate to the child how each new element was formed.
It is recommended that the child is presented to the periodic table prior to this lesson.
