Product Description
This is a fun and creative project for students to practice scientific notation while learning about the planets in our solar system. The project is in three parts:

I. Students will use the NASA website (or the provided printouts from the website) to research four planets in our solar system. They will write facts about each planet (such as the orbit length around the sun) in scientific notation.

II. Students will create a fictional planet, and will make up statistics about their planet, given constraints like "the orbit length must be between the orbit length of Mars and the orbit length of Jupiter". This will let students practice comparing numbers written in scientific notation.

III. Students will create a travel guide to their planet.

Included in this file:
-Teacher instructions
-A four-page student work packet
-A grading rubric (kid-friendly)
-An answer key
-Printouts from the NASA website for students who do not have internet access

When I do this project with my classes, I let them work on it for one day (90-minutes) in class, and then they finish it for homework. It could also be done over a 2-day period in class. My students really love this project!!
