Students plot the positions of the planet Jupiter while predicting what the configuration system looks like from Earth. In this configuration of satellites lesson, students photograph Jupiter and its moons to record the motions of the four satellites throughout the week. Students then make estimations regarding distances and measurements.
Students tour Jupiter. In this scenario based lesson, students examine the size of Jupiter and make models of the other planets in the solar system to show how large Jupiter is compared to the other planets.
Students identify questions and concepts that guide scientific investigations as well as recognize and analyze alternative explanations and models. After a brief discussion on Jupiter, students read and article on the discovery of Jupiter Radio Emissions and answer discussion questions.
In this exploring Jupiter:  Galileo Curriculum Module issue one worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle that tests their knowledge of Jupiter; their are 11 links to other worksheets to explore the planet.
In this Jupiter and Io activity, students use a diagram of the planet and its moon to find the dimension of the image, the width of the largest feature in the atmosphere of Jupiter, the width of the smallest feature in the atmosphere of Jupiter and the size of the smallest feature that can be seen on Io.
Students read information about Jupiter and the planet's weather. In this Jupiter weather lesson, students read information about Jupiter's weather. Students study a chart about the weather on Earth and Jupiter. Students read a weather forecast for Jupiter.
Students compare deep ocean conditions to those found on the moons of Jupiter. In this Earth science lesson, students consider the possibilities and conditions needed to support simple life. Students examine the habitats and life found near oceanic hot vents to determine if conditions on Jupiter's moons are life sustaining. Students will use evidence to write a paper stating if they believe life could or could not live on one of Jupiter's moons.
For this Jupiter worksheet, students read a passage about the environment and atmosphere of Jupiter. Students then answer several multiple choice questions about the passage.
Students explore Jupiter's Moons. They calculate and predict the location of Jupiter's 4 large moons. In addition, they draw Jupiter with its moons correctly shown for the time of the observation.
Students explore Jupiter's magnetosphere. In this Jupiter lesson, students examine a diagram of the magnetic field that surrounds Jupiter.
Students discuss similarities and differences of the inner and outer planets. In this outer planets lesson, students participate in activities to learn about the outer planets and write a letter, a news article or a song.
Students read The Right Place for Jupiter. In this guided reading lesson, students discuss the layout of the text and unfamiliar words. Students summarize the text in writing.
In this Jupiter research learning exercise, students explore the provided link and take notes on the planet as they respond to 13 short answer and fill in the blank questions.
Use literature for interdisciplinary instruction with NASA's mission to Jupiter.
Students investigate the difference between mass and weight.  In this middle school science activity, students conduct an experiment in which they measure the weight of a mass in Newtons and use that information to determine the weight of 100 pennies on the moon, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter. 
Here is a planet worksheet in which learners read about organic molecules detected through spectral lines of the planet Osiris. They calculate the mass, the volume and the densities of common ingredients for planets including Osiris and Jupiter.
In this hunt for planets worksheet, students read about the Kepler satellite used to detect exoplanets. Students solve 6 problems including drawing a sun disk and determining the scale in kilometers/millimeter, finding the area of the Sun disk and determining the area of Earth and Jupiter.
Students identify Saturn. In this space instructional activity students identify the defining characteristics of Saturn and compare and contrast it with Jupiter. Students make a model of Saturn. 
In this motion worksheet, students will use Newton's third law of motion to compare the force of objects on Earth with objects on Jupiter. This worksheet has 5 short answer questions.
An amazing information-packed lesson plan allows your space scientists to crash a virtual comet into Jupiter and learn how the angle, distance, speed, and mass influence the outcome. Click on "Back to the Lesson" to access the interactive website. Use this in a physics course to enrich your lessons on gravitational forces, or use it with younger science learners when teaching about planets or comets.
