Sixth graders investigate how far the Earth is from the Sun. They study the relative sizes of the planets to each other by measuring and making models.
In this space missions activity, students read about the launch of the space shuttle Magellan and its exploration of Venus. Students complete 2 short answer questions based on the reading.
Fourth graders explore and record the characteristics of the nine planets, then explore gravitation as it applies to orbits.
Learners explain the observed motion of the planets. The inner ones move back-and-forth across the position of the Sun, while the outer ones usually advance in one direction, but with occasional temporary reversals known as "retrograde motion. "
Students create a scale model of the Earth and the sun that demonstrates where the SOHO satellite is in relation to the Earth.
Twelfth graders discover how astronomers learn indirectly about objects in space without seeing them. They research one specific astronomical discovery using an exploratory device such as a space probe, and analyze how the data provide information to define and understand objects in space.
Students explore the theories of the creation of the universe and examine the properties of celestial bodies. They analyze the relationship between the sun, Earth and the other planets.
Students, in groups, evaluate conditions outside the building and inside the classroom using thermometers, barometers, anemometers, etc. They compare interior and exterior conditions. They consider and discuss factors that contribute to planetary habitability.
Students complete a group experiment which simulates the greenhouse effect as well as compare the climate on Earth to the climate on Venus following a class discussion on the greenhouse effect.
Students complete language activities based on the work of super heroes. In this super heroes lesson plan, students label pictures, complete sentences, fill in a schedule, and more.
Students examine the distances between the Sun, planets, and smaller objects in the Solar System. They design a model using beads that shows the scale distances of the Solar System using astronomical units converted into a 10 centimeter scale.
In this planet activity, 1st graders review the planets of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Pluto and Moon, cut the shapes out, and color them.
Young scholars read and study an article then answer questions on Saturn.  In this investigative lesson students identify ways space exploration has helped humanity and then they search the Internet for space pictures and sketch a drawing of an image. 
Eighth graders examine the formation of craters. In this craters lesson plan, 8th graders discover the various energies involved in the formation of a crater, where you can find a crater in the Solar System, and observations of craters on the Moon.  Students experiment in groups and discuss their results. 
Students conduct a poll to determine how different people get to a particular location. In this problem solving lesson, students ask both men and women to describe how they get to a particular location. Then, they determine the frequency of absolute and relative location in terms of gender. Students will graph their results and draw conclusions based on statistical data.
Students take temperature measurements in closed systems over time and record data to demonstrate "greenhouse warming," which is observed in greenhouses and in planetary atmospheres like those of Venus, Saturn's moon Titan, and possibly Earth's.
Young scholars learn about the characteristics of the planets Mercury and Venus. In this planets lesson, students learn about these planets and their differences from Earth. They also learn how the inventions of engineers have made it possible to learn about these planets.
Students debate the validity of predictions about the greenhouse effect.
Students, after being given extensive information on surface roughness on Venus and a presentation on the electromagnetic spectrum, are introduced to the use of radar images for geologic feature identification. They explore the reflection of NASA and its findings with radar images as well. In addition, they simulate a radar image in a lab experiment with string and photographs.
In this letter V worksheet, learners practice writing the letter V and color a venus fly trap. Students draw flies in a box and then write the letter V in circles.
