Learning Objective

Students will make a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and in the solar system.

Description

Students will love these activities on gravity in the solar system. Students will make a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and in the solar system. Students will love learning about gravity and inertia in our solar system.

This Unit Includes:

  • three pages of reading passages
  • comprehension questions
  • lab and lab directions
  • lab write-ups
  • demonstration
  • lesson plans
  • response sheets
  • Interactive notebook flaps
  • QR code research
  • quiz
  • answer keys

This resource is aligned with the Utah SEEd standard 6.1.2

Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity and inertia in orbital motions of objects in our solar system. This is part of the Structure and Motion within the Solar System.

The nonfiction passages are also aligned with Reading Informational Text Standards for Utah Core.

Students will be able to define both gravity and inertia and they will learn a little about the scientists who came up with these ideas.

Science Concepts Taught in this Unit:

Gravity in space

Objects in motion stay in motion unless a force acts upon them

Objects at rest stay at rest unless a force acts upon them

Objects with large masses in space bend the fabric of space- we experience this as gravity

The greater the mass of an object, the greater the gravitational pull

The greater the distance between objects the less the gravitational pull

Size and distance in the universe

Research on Planets and other Celestial Bodies in Solar System

Milky Way Galaxy
