PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Student Internet investigation that explores the planet Saturn. The activity is divided into two parts. The first part gives the student a good overview of Saturn's physical characteristics. Part two investigates the moons of Saturn as well as the current and possible future mission 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:
Saturn, ring system, cloud bands, storms, planet composition, wind speed, interior structure, magnetic field, ringlets, shepherd moons, A, B & C rings, Cassini, planetesimals, Roche limit, moons, Titan, Huygens probe, Saturnian year, Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Iapetus, "Death Star" moon, moon atmosphere, methane lakes
