Description

Help your students learn about the 8 planets by using templates to conduct research. The packet includes a template for each of the 8 planets with basic teacher answer keys. You can bind all 8 sheets to create a planet guide book or just have your students use these handy fact sheets to organize their notes. **This product now contains a digital format in addition to a printable (PDF format), perfect for distance learning or paperless classrooms. You can use the templates with the curriculum/website of your choice or you can send your students off on a library scavenger hunt of their own to collect the information.

Students complete the following information for each planet:

  • Circle the planet in based on its position in the galaxy
  • Distance from the Sun
  • Diameter
  • Relative Mass
  • Average Density
  • Average Temperature
  • Number of Moons
  • Is it inner or outer?
  • Have any spacecraft visited the planet?
  • Describe the planet's atmosphere.
  • Draw a picture of the planet.
  • Check off the characteristics of the planet.

A "how-to" use this product direction sheet and a digital guide are also provided.

A two-page template is provided for creating a travel brochure to another planet. This is a great addition to a planet research project or poster board. You can also have students work in teams to create brochures for all 8 planets.

In addition we have included two graphic organizers for helping students compare and contrast two planets.
