Students study the Neptune ring and the Barkley Sound to learn about marine environments. In this marine environments lesson, students read an article about the Neptune nodes. Students find locations on a chart of Barkley Sound. Students work in groups to complete stations for temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen. Students then answer discussion questions.
Fractions in Space
In this fractions in space worksheet, students solve 4 problems where they find ratios of orbit periods of satellites, they find the ratio of Neptune's and Pluto's periods, they determine the location of the planets after 5 opposition periods and they determine how far the center of mass of a small planet is from a larger planet.
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 plan would be most appropriate in a private school or Sunday school setting.

In this planets learning exercise, students read information about Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto and then complete 18 multiple choice, 4 true or false, and 2 fill in the blank questions.
For this reading comprehension worksheet, students read information about the planet Neptune. Students read 3 paragraphs about the planet.
Every Day Edit - Neptune's Discovery
In this everyday editing activity, students correct grammatical mistakes in a short paragraph about the discovery of Neptune. The errors range from grammar, spelling, capitalization, punctuation.
In this Neptune worksheet, 4th graders learn facts about the planet Neptune and read a short paragraph about the planet. Students enhance their understanding of planets.
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!
Reading Comprehension Sheet #8: Neptune
In this reading comprehension activity, students use the information from the activity about Neptune. Students then answer 5 questions about the information.
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.
Back To The Drawing Board
Students recognize and imitate Leonardo da Vinci's unique artistic style. Through observation and practice, students capture the look of real things from many angles in actual space. They attempt their own still life drawing.
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.
Baltimore as a Port of Entry
Fourth graders explore the Port of Baltimore. In this European immigration to America lesson plan, 4th graders investigate the port as port of entry between 1830 and 1850. Students examine primary documents from selected Web sites and discuss what emigrating to new country would be like. Extension activities are included.
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.
Solar System and Planets
Students identify the main components of the solar system. For this earth science lesson, students order the planets according to their distances from the Sun. They differentiate planets from dwarf planets.
Making Models of the Solar System
Students make several models of the solar system to learn the positions of the planets in the solar system as well as relative distances and sizes. Creation of these models will help them identify the planets by size, shape, color, features, and position in the solar system. This lesson also includes practice of key vocabulary words as well as the skills of asking and answering specific questions.
The Outer Planets
In this outer planets worksheet, learners determine if 15 statements about Neptune, Pluto, Saturn and Uranus are true or false. If they are false, students change the italicized words in the sentences to make the statements true.
Making Models of the Solar System
Students discover our Solar System by creating miniature models. In this space science instructional activity, students utilize a clothesline, construction paper and clothespins to recreate the solar system within their classroom. Students create a drawing of the Solar System they can bring home and study.
What's This Solar System All About?
Sixth graders complete a unit of lessons on the solar system. In small groups, they participate in a Webquest, watch movies, complete graphic organizers, and answer questions, create a model of the planets, and develop a Powerpoint presentation.
Once in a Blue Moon (Number Systems and Number Theory)
Students review the order of the planets from the sun and use the data to create a human solar system. Pupils are assigned the name of a planet, and physically demonstrate the orbits and the time it takes for each of the planets to revolve around the sun.
