This is a handmade project that I drew for students to define, research and color to explain the steps of solar system formation. I have title 1 students and this caught their attention because it's handmade.The end product will be a book. All you need is staples! Very simple period long lesson that all students will do!
What they are making is the steps in the formation of the solar system. As you turn each page the solar system grows starting from a Nebula to the sun and planets. They also draw and use color to help represent it. Students also define The Law of Universal Gravitation and Centripetal force.
Students use resources to help answer or you can make this an alternate assessment.
Uses only 1 sheet of paper!
LESSON PLAN INCLUDED** just print and turn it in when needed!!
