Students use data on solar storms to learn about the different kinds of storms and how common they are. Professionals do this basic science activity to look for relationships between different kinds of events that might lead to clues about what causes them. Can your students come up with something new that no one has thought about before? The Venn Diagramming activity is a key element of the activity and is reasonably challenging. A one-page teacher guide accompanies the one-page assignment.
