Young scholars read The Right Place for Jupiter. In this guided reading lesson, students discuss the layout of the text and unfamiliar words. Young scholars summarize the text in writing.
My Name is Jupiter
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.
Pupils use their knowledge to crash a comet into Jupiter or make a comet fly past the planet without colliding with it.
Test Prep With TFK
For this test prep worksheet, learners read four news stories. The topics include Jupiter, space museums, a gray whale, and the Washington Monument. After reading, students make inferences, recall facts, determine sequences, and draw conclusions about each story. One page is devoted to each story. Answers are multiple choice, and short answer format. There are approximately five answers per page.
Following in Galileo's Footsteps
Students explore the findings of Galileo and research the moons of Jupiter. They construct simple telescopes, and examine the moons for themselves at a star party. They record their findings in a journal.
Graphing Jupiter Radio Signals
Students explore fundamentals of graphing and generation of connections to the graphing tools neede to further develop an understanding of Project Radio Jove. Techniques are explored that can eliminate random fluctuations in the data.
Reading Comprehension Sheet #10 Jupiter
In this reading comprehension worksheet, students learn about Jupiter by reading a one page text. Students complete 7 multiple choice questions about the passage they read.
What do You Know about Jupiter Already
Students explore information about the planet Jupiter. In this Jupiter lesson, students answer questions to find out how much they know about Jupiter. Students research using a website.
The Moons of Jupiter
Seventh graders study the moons of Jupiter. In this space science lesson, 7th graders plot the density and diameter of the Galilean satellites on the chart. Students then hypothesize about the composition and trends for distance for the moons of Jupiter.
Planet Structure & Interior
Students compare Jupiter and Earth. In this Earth and space studies instructional activity, students compare the composition of Earth and Jupiter and analyze how the composition affects the rate at which the planets spin.
The Solar System Walk
A unique lesson on the solar system, and some of the mathematics associated with it, is here for your high schoolers. Pupils are put into groups of four, and each group is assigned one of the planets from our solar system. They must perform mathematical conversions and calculations to determine their planet's distance from the sun. Two excellent worksheets are embedded in the plan, which will make implementation quite easy. Very good!
Students predict which of Jupiter's moons will be the "brightest" in infrared wavelengths. Using provided information, they rank the moos from brightes to faintest in infrared.
In this solar system instructional activity, 3rd graders read facts about Jupiter including its position from the sun, the length of its year, and number of moons. They read about its color, clouds, and Red Spot.
The Planets- Kerpoof Lesson Plan
Students use the website Kerpoof to examine the planets.

Students use KWL charts to organize their information and write a creative story that tells what it would be like to live on one of the planets. This lesson includes adaptations, mulitple activity ideas, clipart, worksheets and online resources.
Exploring the Planets
Students study robotic spacecrafts that have provided detailed information about the inner and outer planets. In this exploring the planets lesson plan, students use posters and diagrams to study the various robotic spacecraft sent to the planets. They explore the different ways scientists have learned about our planets.
What is a conjunction? Read the section introducing conjunctions with your young learners. There are three short activities before a review section. This is a great resource for your emerging grammarians.
Space Science: Journey Through the Solar System
Students explore the Solar System and examine the characteristics of al the planets. Through research and discussion, they create catalogs of the Solar System's components. Next, students use their findings to create Powerpoint versions of their catalogs. The lesson plan concludes with students creating travel brochures of a chosen planet.
Planet Fractions and Scales
For this planets and fractions worksheet, students solve nine problems about the sizes and scales of planets compared to each other using fractions.
Astronomy and Me: Moons Over New Haven
Third graders study the features of different moons orbiting the planets. In this astronomy lesson, 3rd graders explore the different phases of the moon using an interactive online website. They compare and contrast the features of the Earth's moon and that of the Jupiter and Saturn.
Our Place in Space
Third graders identify the different planets that make up the solar system. In this space science instructional activity, 3rd graders construct a scale model of the major planets. They explore their different unique features and dress up as planets.
