Students role-play and communicate that objects in space have describable properties, locations, and movements. Students identify and communicate effectively that Earth is the third planet from the Sun in the solar system, eight other planets and their moons, and smaller objects. Students identify that these objects orbit the Sun. Most objects in the solar system are in regular and predictable motion.
Students investigate a spreadsheet application of the TI-83 Plus. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students determine a person’s weight on different planet by using a spread sheet application.
In this outer space worksheet, learners cut at illustrations of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Pluto, and the moon. Students paste them together in their correct arrangement.
In this linear equations learning exercise, 8th graders solve 10 different problems that include various types of linear equations. First, they write the distance between Venus and the Sun in scientific notation. Then, students determine the slope of a line given an illustration. They also name the linear equation represented in the table shown.
In this astronomy worksheet, students read a detailed text about our solar system. Students then answer 15 questions about the information presented.
In this textbook/trade book/magazine/periodical learning exercise, students examine examples. Students respond to 10 short answer questions based on the examples.
Students discuss the sculptural group of Three Goddessesby Joseph Nollekens in a study of the classical past. In this Classical history lesson, students describe the three figures in the painting and read an excerpt for the story the art was based on. Students visit various websites to research the Grand Tour and classical examples in today's forms of art. Students discuss American myths.
Fourth graders explore the pollination process. For this plant biology lesson, 4th graders dissect a flower to identify the parts of a flower and watch a video to see seed dispersal. Students write about the pollination process.
Learners study artifacts that represent fertility. In this art and artifact analysis lesson, students study the fertility objects, read the background information about the artifacts, and discuss their representations.
In this finding the circumference of planets worksheet, 5th graders use a calculator to find the circumference of the Earth, then complete a table for other planets.
Students examine how carnivorous plants get their nutrients from animals. In this food web instructional activity students examine how the plants attract their prey and are given many onilne sources to research.
Students perform a literature search and use reputable research resources in order to find the surface temperature of different planets in our solar system. They speculate about the observed and unobserved factors. Then brainstorming is done in order to give solutions to a problem.
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.
Fourth graders explore and record the characteristics of the nine planets, then explore gravitation as it applies to orbits.
Students 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 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.
