This curriculum guide is intended for high school teachers who are teaching solar physics, especially the effects of solar activity on terrestrial planets.  The chapters discuss stellar evolution, the structure of the sun, studying the sun, and solar and terrestrial interactions.  Lab activities provided include: building a spectroscope, energy transport within the sun, measuring the solar constant, luminosity of the sun and stars, seeing different wavelengths, the Earth-Sun orientation, the effect of the solar wind on the geomagnetic field, determining the rotation period of the sun, and radiation hazards in space.
