Description

Our Solar System Lesson and Assignment Package. This package will take 1-4 DAYS depending on how much class time you give for the assignment. The package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation), an auto-graded Exit Ticket, a Bill Nye video and worksheet (worksheet includes a direct video link and answer key), a newsletter assignment and a student lesson handout as a document. The lesson is fun and applicable with FIVE videos embedded in the presentation.

In order, the lesson covers:

  • Our Solar System
  • The Sun
  • The Inner Planets
  • The Outer Planets
  • Why was Pluto demoted?
  • Observing Stars and Planets
  • The Moon

_______________

  • This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
  • Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
  • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

Included in the lesson package is:

  • Office and Google version of resources
  • Science Newsletter Assignment
  • The teacher version of the presentation
  • The student version of the presentation
  • An auto-graded Exit Ticket
  • A Bill Nye video and worksheet (includes a direct video link and answer key)
  • FIVE videos embedded into the presentation
  • Student lesson handout

The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

This lesson can also be found within the Space Unit by clicking here.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSSMS-ESS1-2
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.
NGSSMS-ESS1-3
Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system. Emphasis is on the analysis of data from Earth-based instruments, space-based telescopes, and spacecraft to determine similarities and differences among solar system objects. Examples of scale properties include the sizes of an object’s layers (such as crust and atmosphere), surface features (such as volcanoes), and orbital radius. Examples of data include statistical information, drawings and photographs, and models. Assessment does not include recalling facts about properties of the planets and other solar system bodies.
NGSSMS-ESS1-1
Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons. Examples of models can be physical, graphical, or conceptual.
