Predicting the Configuration of the Satellites of Jupiter
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.
Learners tour Jupiter. In this scenario based activity, 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.
The Discovery of Jupiter Radio Waves
Young scholars 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.
Exploring Jupiter: Galileo Curriculum Module Issue One
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.
Jupiter and Io
In this Jupiter and Io worksheet, learners 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.
Introduction to the Outer Planets, Jupiter
Learners 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.
Jupiter's Weather Forecast
Pupils read information about Jupiter and the planet's weather. In this Jupiter weather lesson, students read information about Jupiter's weather. Pupils study a chart about the weather on Earth and Jupiter. Students read a weather forecast for Jupiter.
From the Gulf of Mexico to the Moons of 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.
Flyby with Juno
Use literature for interdisciplinary instruction with NASA's mission to Jupiter.
Jupiter - King of the Planets
In this Jupiter worksheet, students read a passage about the environment and atmosphere of Jupiter. Students then answer several multiple choice questions about the passage.
Finding Jupiter's Moons
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.
Jupiter's "Monstrous" Magnetosphere
Learners explore Jupiter's magnetosphere. For this Jupiter lesson, students examine a diagram of the magnetic field that surrounds Jupiter.
Students investigate the difference between mass and weight. In this middle school science lesson, 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.
Organic Molecules Detected on Distant Planet!
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.
Kepler-The Hunt for Earth-like Planets
In this hunt for planets learning exercise, 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.
Saturn and Its Rings
Learners identify Saturn. In this space lesson students identify the defining characteristics of Saturn and compare and contrast it with Jupiter. Learners 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.
The Relative Sizes of The Sun and Stars
In this relative sizes of the sun and stars worksheet, students determine the relative sizes of the Earth, Jupiter, the Sun and other stars. Students compare the size of stars given ratios of one star to another.
People on the Move
Students explore transportation. In this transportation lesson, students examine the Jupiter locomotive, Washingtion D.C. streetcars, the Leviathan, the Salisbury Train Station, and Route 66. Students respond to 12 questions.
