In this relative sizes of the sun and stars worksheet, learners 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.
Students explore transportation. In this transportation lesson, kids examine the Jupiter locomotive, Washingtion D.C. streetcars, the Leviathan, the Salisbury Train Station, and Route 66. Students respond to 12 questions.
Students use their knowledge to crash a comet into Jupiter or make a comet fly past the planet without colliding with it.
In this test prep worksheet, students 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.
Pupils 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.
Students compare Jupiter and Earth. In this Earth and space studies lesson, students compare the composition of Earth and Jupiter and analyze how the composition affects the rate at which the planets spin.
Learners 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.
For 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.
Students explore information about the planet Jupiter. For this Jupiter lesson, students answer questions to find out how much they know about Jupiter. Students research using a website.
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.
In this Jupiter worksheet, students research the answers to five key facts associated with Jupiter including the distance from the sun and how long it takes to rotate around the earth.
Young scholars 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 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.
A unique lesson plan 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 use the website Kerpoof to examine the planets. In this solar system lesson, students classify the planets by characteristics, discover new "space vocabulary", and what the planets are made of. 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. 
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.
Students will use number theory skills to investigate when certain planets are aligned. Students review the order of the planets from the sun and use this data to create a human solar system. They are assigned the name of a planet, and physically demonstr
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. 
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.
In this planets and fractions worksheet, students solve nine problems about the sizes and scales of planets compared to each other using fractions.
