Relative Sizes of Planets

Sixth graders create a Thinking Map bubble chart to display the relative sizes of the nine planets (diameter) in the solar system. They fill out a Planetary Data Table by comparing and contrasting the planets from information found in the textbook. Then they create a simple database to organize their findings.

Melanie B.
I have found some wonderful resources to use with my students through Lesson Planet. I am a former public school teacher who has taken on a private home school in order to meet the needs of those students who are not being served properly in the public school setting. I want to shift the focus from standardized tests back to LEARNING.
