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
