Product Description
Student Internet investigation that further explores the planet Jupiter. The activity is divided into two parts. The first part gives the student a good overview of Jupiter's physical characteristics. Part two investigates the moons of Jupiter as well as the current/future missions to the planet. The latest links containing images and data are presented as well for this topic. I use this computer lab activity for my astronomy class as part of the Unit V "The Outer Planets" review but it can also be used at an 8th grade level Earth/Space activity. (Some students will finish the activity within one class period but generally it will take about an hour to complete.)

Topics/terms in this activity include:
Part I "Planet Jupiter" - Great Red Spot, largest planet, atmosphere composition, storms, white & brown ovals, atmospheric banding, planetary mass, rings, Oval BA, Juno mission, magnetic field, magnetosphere, auroras, 5th planet from the Sun, radiation, planet structure, liquid hydrogen ocean, planetary opposition, retrograde motion

Part II "Moons of Jupiter" - 63 moons, four Galilean moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, surface features, volcanoes, physical features, ice layer, subsurface oceans & lakes, water geysers, life, hydrothermal vents, Europa Clipper, largest moon, magnetic field, cratering, impact basins, Asgard, Valhala
