Use computational thinking to analyze data and determine the and properties of objects in the solar system. Examples of scale could include size and distance. Examples of properties could include layers, temperature, surface features, and orbital radius. Data sources could include Earth and space-based instruments such as telescopes and satellites. Types of data could include graphs, data tables, drawings, photographs, and models.
This resource is includes two labs, a nonfiction article, interactive notebook flaps, a slide show and more. Students will use computational thinking to analyze data and learn more about the properties of the objects in our solar system.
The informational text article is aligned with the Utah Core 6th grade standards for Reading Informational Text. A quiz in the format of end of year testing is included.
The labs include simple materials such as rope, paper, string and tape. In these labs students will create models to help them understand the data better. Students will collect data from reputable websites using QR codes or clickable links.
