Product Description

Get kids THINKING! Challenge students to bring together everything they have learned about a planet's motion in space.

Includes 2 Versions:

Version A: This is a group or partner project. The teacher assigns each group one of ten IMAGINARY planets. Students determine the information necessary about the planet they were assigned by looking at a data table provided, including its rotation, revolution, axis, and moons. They then create a presentation about their planet which will include information about the planets day/night cycle, its year, if it has season, tides, and extreme tides. How detailed this presentation is will be up to your discretion, and you will need to provide the class some clarification on this. As the class watches their peers present their projects, the audience will complete the “Planet Comparisons” worksheet.

Version B: This version is a worksheet that gives students the same data table about IMAGINARY planets as Version A, but they will be finding the information for EVERY planet instead of just one, as in in Version A. They complete a graphic organizer instead of generating a presentation. Because it can be challenging, we suggest having them do this analysis in pairs.

Both versions of this activity really requires students to synthesize everything they have learned about rotation, revolution, seasons, and tides. It is challenging, but rewarding!
