Students study the Neptune ring and the Barkley Sound to learn about marine environments. In this marine environments lesson plan, 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.
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 instructional activity would be most appropriate in a private school or Sunday school setting.
In this reading comprehension learning exercise, students read information about the planet Neptune. Students read 3 paragraphs about the planet.
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.
In this reading comprehension worksheet, students use the information from the worksheet about Neptune. Students then answer 5 questions about the information.
Travel to deep space and view the icy blue planet, Neptune. You'll learn about Neptune's rings, its great dark spot, size, and surface. Great graphics and real images make this a perfect clip for learners in grades 3-6.
In this outer planets worksheet, students 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.
Young scholars explore literature and art forms containing creatures that are part human and part animal, such as the Greek Sphinx, Neptune, or the Green Centaur. Individually, students write a poem or short story to create a character with both human and animal characteristics. They illustrate the mythical beast by creating a sculpture for the story.
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 activity.
In this fractions in space worksheet, learners 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.
Students identify Neptune. In this planet lesson students describe the defining characteristics of Neptune. Students compare and contrast Neptune to the planets Uranus and Jupiter. Students also discuss how God created the solar system. 
In this planets worksheet, 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.
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.
Use a variety of whole fruits to represent the different planets in the solar system to introduce scale sizes to your math or space science class. They follow suit by creating a non-scaled model of the solar system using specific-colored pony beads. 
Why do Saturn and the other gas giants have rings? Hank reveals the Roche limit as the cause, the distance within which gas planets would fail to hold together due to their own gravity. At this particular distance, orbiting materials also break down and disperse to form rings of matter. For a few minutes, you can let Hank do the teaching for you!
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.

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
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.
Third graders identify the different planets that make up the solar system. For this space science lesson, 3rd graders construct a scale model of the major planets. They explore their different unique features and dress up as planets.
