  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This NO PREP lesson will help students understand the organization of our solar system and the importance of gravity. Students will learn about items that are found in our solar system, the difference between the terrestrial and gas giants as well as two mnemonics to help students remember the planets in order from the sun (including the asteroid belt) and the size of planets. The presentation also describes the basics of gravity and how it keeps objects in orbit.

Included are two pages of notes and an answer key for the notes which can be helpful for students who need "clean copies" of notes.

Note: At this time, this presentation is not editable due to the high quality of images and purchased fonts.

Topics included in this product:

  • Objects in the solar system vs not in the solar system
  • Terrestrial planets and characteristics they have in common
  • Gas giant planets and the characteristics they have in common
  • Mnemonic for remembering the planets in order from the sun (including the Asteroid Belt)
  • Mnemonic for remembering the size of planets from smallest to greatest
  • The basics of gravity in our solar system
  • How gravity and inertia work to keep our planets in orbit

Resources included in this product:

  • Solar System PowerPoint
  • Notes
  • Answer Key

Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system. Emphasis for the model is on gravity as the force that holds together the solar system and Milky Way galaxy and controls orbital motions within them. Examples of models can be physical (such as the analogy of distance along a football field or computer visualizations of elliptical orbits) or conceptual (such as mathematical proportions relative to the size of familiar objects such as students’ school or state). Assessment does not include Kepler’s Laws of orbital motion or the apparent retrograde motion of the planets as viewed from Earth.
