This activity is a great science center, summative activity, and/or assessment for a Space Unit. The project includes directions and guiding questions for students to create their own planet that exists within our solar system. The activity is ready to print, but it is also fully editable so that you can adjust it based on the needs of your students.
First Page: Brainstorming Rocket!
Second Page: Guiding Questions about planet's name and characteristics
Third Page: Guiding Questions about life on the planet and space to illustrate life
Knowledge about planets' characteristics in relation to their location in the solar system can be assessed using the questions provided. I have used this activity for many years, and it is loved by my students, their parents, and myself! :)
