  The cover of the Living With a Star Teacher's Guide.
This Website accompanies the Living with a Star: GEMS® (Great Explorations in Math and Science) Teacher's Guide®, which examines our relationship with the dynamic Sun.

The Living with a Star Website contains materials that can be used in conjunction with the print guide as well as resources that can be used independently by teachers or students. Please note that some of these materials are provided as background information for teachers and might be too advanced for middle school students.
