Planning a Planet is a fun activity that can be completed in a team. It could be used as a summative assessment for an Earth Science unit. This activity has the students create their own planet using their knowledge about our planet and the solar system. They make a 3D model and incorporate such details as seasons, tilt, number of suns, moons, etc. The activity works well for differentiated learning as students use and apply the information they know. The activity works well with the ELA common core. Students love to share about their planets with their classmates.
