Assesses information about the 8 planets in our solar system. Higher order thinking skills are needed, and the students will need to know the order of the planets from the sun out, the size of the planets from largest to smallest (or vice versa), and which are the gas giants and which are the terrestrial planets. Pluto is not considered a planet, because of its declassification more than 10 years ago.
Great for a quiz or a class activity. Great for collaborative work.
Beats just telling students to write them.
Instead it asks questions like "Which gas giant is closest to Mars?" or "Which planet is smaller than earth and larger than Mars?
