PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Two short teacher backgrounds give you an introduction to the planets, the asteroid belt, and the dwarf planets.

Use a PowerPointpresentation* to introduce our solar system to students. Help them understand the size by creating a scale model of their classroom, a scale model for the Earth and the Moon, a scale model for the Sun and the solar system and a scale for getting to the stars. Scale the planets by diameter, use seeds to create a model, and then play Planet Jeopardy!

Create a scale model of the solar system outside or use toilet paper tubes, a meter stick, and string to create a model that fits in your classroom and stores easily for future classes!

Read a short text about the solar system and then choose from twelve one- or two-page texts for students to read about the bodies in the solar system, including: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, the Asteroid Belt, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, and Eris. The text and images are from NASA.

It's difficult to predict how long to plan for this product - two weeks to four weeks depending on your schedule and how many days a week you teach science!

This product could be added to unit that meets NGSS standard MS-ESS1-3♦.
