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.
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.
3rd - 6th Science
Students 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.

Solar System Scale & Size
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.

Characteristics of the Outer Planets
A brief reading comprehension exercise, this worksheet covers the characteristics of the outer planets. It still considers Pluto a planet and Charon its moon. It is therefore a little out of date, but this fact can be discussed as part of the learning experience.

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.

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.
11th - 12th Science
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.

Why Does Saturn Have Rings?
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.
