These notes have been designed to introduce students to our solar system and the planets & moons within it. It was designed for 8th graders, but could very easily be for grade levels below or above if you make minor changes to the presentation or verbally add, reiterate or explain things in a new and different way.
For more of a challenge, download my "Planetary Information Quest" two-page worksheet. It goes into way more depth regarding the inner and outer planets (answer key included).
