Product Description
This can be an exciting addition to your morning routine to keep your students interested in what is going on in space or to supplement an ongoing space unit.

This download includes:
- a Heliocentric (Sun-centered) planet-tracking sheet (color, b&w)
- a Geocentric (Earth-centered) planet-tracking sheet (color, b&w)

I suggest checking the position of the planets as a class no more than once a week at theplanetstoday.com.

Students will find it exciting to track the planets as they orbit around the Sun and/or the Earth and learn about: 1) the order of the planets, 2) how time measured as number of days it takes to revolve around the sun varies by planet, 3) learn the astrological symbols of each planet, 4) how to describe relationships between planets with astronomical terms such as “conjunction”, “ecliptic”, and “superior” and “inferior” planets!

Of course, this planetary investigation will be more fun if your class keeps track of how the planets move throughout the year.

Happy Planet Tracking! :)
