Students must fill in a chart/table on the eight main planets, three of the dwarf planets (Ceres, Pluto, Eris) and the minor members of the solar system (meteors, comets, Asteroid Belt & etc). The information needed is included on the Powerpoint. It goes over: classification, size, distance, rotation, revolution and significant features (also included in the Powerpoint but not the chart are some fun interesting facts like the god or goddess names of the planets). All images in the Powerpoint are from NASA.
The chart is formatted in Word and PDF files.
