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.
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 instructional activity, 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.
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.
For this Jupiter and Io worksheet, 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 compare deep ocean conditions to those found on the moons of Jupiter. For 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.
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.
In this water on planetary surfaces worksheet, students read about the Galileo spacecraft and the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. They read about the energy needed to keep the water in a liquid state on Europa. Students solve 4 problems including finding energy of electrical items in Joules and converting to Watts and determining the time it takes to melt a block of ice using a 2,000 watt hair dryer.
A slide for each of the planets (including recently downgraded Pluto), the sun, our moon, four of Jupiter's moons, and the rings of Saturn make up this visually appealing PowerPoint. A few facts for each body in the solar system accompany mostly high-quality photographs. This slide show would make an appropriate introduction to your solar system unit. Consider using it to stimulate interest in the planets and then having learners choose one to research and report on.
In this planets worksheet, students read information about Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn and then complete 21 multiple choice, 1 true or false, and 2 fill in the blank questions.
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.
Young Bible students determine the defining characteristics of the planet Neptune, and make comparisons between Neptune and Uranus and Jupiter. They also explore how God displays his majesty in his creation of the solar system. They also articulate, in writing, the creation of the solar system by God. Note: This lesson would be most appropriate in a private school or Sunday school setting.
Students research volcanoes on the Internet to compare/contrast the volcanoes on Earth to the ones found on Io, a moon of Jupiter. Students list the similarities and differences in science journals, and illustrate pictures of the volcanoes.
Delve into ancient Roman religion using this informational graphic organizer! Historical context begins with brief descriptions of the gods Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune. The images may lack authenticity here. They then read about how Romans worshipped, and an account of the relationship between the Romans and Christians. Activities include 6 short-answer questions and a longer written account, based on the readings. Note there are spelling errors in this worksheet.
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. 
Here is a planet activity 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.
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.
In this relative sizes of the sun and stars learning exercise, 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.
