***Corrected with Images of Stars/planets***
So you know what a star is, right? Well, if you don't, you should. We've talked about that big one in the sky a few times: The Sun! But there are a lot of bright dots in the night sky and not all of them are stars. Today, let's play a game of "Star or Not a Star" to learn a little more about everything that's up there.
This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!

5-ESS1-1. Support an argument that differences in the apparent brightness of the sun compared to other stars is due to their relative distances from Earth. [Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to relative distances, not sizes, of stars. Assessment does not include other factors that affect apparent brightness (such as stellar masses, age, stage).]
