Product Description
Several short teacher backgrounds give you an introduction to the outer planets and dwarf planets.

Lots of great images, six PowerPoint™ presentations*, and four videos make it easy to introduce the outer planets and dwarf planets to your students! All the images in the presentations are copyright free - use them any way you like!

In addition to several teacher demonstrations, students create a space station for Jupiter, a vehicle for one of Saturn's moons, a suit to use while studying Uranus, and a list of supplies needed to travel to and from Neptune.

Read five short texts about the outer planets and the dwarf planets. Each student text has been saved with color or blackline images that students can color. All five have been translated into Spanish.

It's difficult to predict how long to plan for this product - two weeks to six weeks depending on your schedule and how many days a week you teach science!

This product could be added to unit that meets NGSS standard MS-ESS1-3♦.
