PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson and 18 slide animated power point will help your students truly understand what a comet is, where a comet comes from, and why a comet develops a tail. This product also includes a writing prompt, a student learning map, and a diagram for a review activity.

You and your students will love the animations in this powerpoint, and they will help students understand such things as: why a comet's tail always faces away from the sun and the direction of the solar wind, rather than the direction of travel. Students will also learn about short period comets and long period comets. Furthermore, students will learn about several historical comets such as Halley's Comet, Comet Hale-Bopp, and the great comet of 1680!

If you purchased my Solar System Unit bundle, or my asteroids, meteors and comets mini-unit, don't buy this lesson. You already have it!

I hope you enjoy this lesson, turn off the lights in the class to make it feel like your classroom is travelling through space while they learn about comets, the rock stars of space rocks!
