This fun and engaging video guide, worksheet, and review PowerPoint was created for upper elementary, middle school, or early high school students and is a great way to introduce, conclude, or re-teach, planets, the solar system, or give your students a general overview of astronomy.
This is not your average Bill Nye worksheet! I’ve learned over the years that Bill Nye can be a fantastic classroom resource, but only if done properly. That challenge is met with this well designed and graphically engaging student video guide.
If you’re currently teaching a solar system unit please consider buying my solar system bundle at a HUGE discount! It is a growing bundle, which means that you will get this lesson, all the other lessons included in the bundle, and future solar system products FOR FREE!
Solar system - Growing Bundle
This lesson is complete and ready to teach today! All you need to do is make copies and show the video! The wrap up PowerPoint even guides students through grading their own worksheet, so you’ll have another grade for your gradebook with minimal effort!
This is an extremely popular lesson in my classroom! Students love the rare opportunity to enjoy a video, but the challenge is keeping them engaged and on task. That challenge is met with a visually fun activity and wrap up PowerPoint. Students need to stay engaged in the video to complete the activity. Graphics provide visual clues to help students avoid falling behind. Bundle includes a 25 question, 6 page student worksheet aligned with Bill Nye the Science Guy Planets. Full teacher key with all answers included. Also included is a 47 slide PowerPoint to guide students through grading their own papers! The PowerPoint has been converted to PDF, so you can view the presentation on any machine that can view a PDF, even if you don’t have a copy of Microsoft PowerPoint! The PowerPoint allows for class discussion of difficult concepts and makes sure that learning takes place for the entire class period, not just while the video is playing!
This activity packet will be a great resource for any curriculum that teaches planets, solar system, or astronomy. This activity would work well with a sub if desired. Lesson is one class period in length.
As a point of reference I teach a 50 minute class and generally complete the video, conclusion PowerPoint, and have students grade their own papers in one day. Created by Mister Science.
