Task: Research and become an expert on a particular planet, moon, or exoplanet. Share your findings with the class through a presentation.

This file includes the directions handout I give students. They either pick or are assigned a planet, moon, or exoplanet to research. Each student will be researching the same information for their particular object.
Topics Include:
-History
-Numerical Data
-Composition
-Characteristics
-How Do We Know?
-Miscellaneous

Within each of these categories, students are asked 5-10 specific questions. Students then compile all of their info into a presentation to give the class. A guided notes packet is included (one page for each object presented) for the audience to fill out as each presentation is given.

The zip file contains pdf and editable word documents.
