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 PowerPoint), 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 word document. The PowerPoint is fun and applicable with TWO videos embedded into the PowerPoint.
Included in the lesson package is:
- Science Newsletter Assignment
- The teacher version of the Power Point
- The student version of the Power Point
- A Bill Nye video and worksheet (includes a direct video link and answer key)
- TWO videos embedded into the Power Point
- Student lesson handout
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
The student version of the power point 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.
