Our Solar System and Seasons

Sixth graders investigate the relative diameters of planets and distances between them and the cause for seasons on Earth using the 5-E Learning Model. They appreciate the size and distances involved with objects in the real universe. Students explore why Earth experiences seasons, and discover the climatic differences between the poles, middle latitudes and the equator.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
