This WebQuest walks students through the sun, planets, and asteroid belt of our solar system. Using the following website:
kids read/answer questions about each space body and draw each body's symbol (and make up a symbol for the asteroid belt).
I use this with my 7th graders (Earth Science). It's a little long for them, so just keep that in mind- with 7th grade, they need 2 class periods. Older kids will need less. . If you have students that finish ahead of time, you can give them the following printable to color:
I offer this part as extra credit to all of my students and tell the students that the colors have to be realistic/representative of each planet.
