- Join to access all included materials
Young astronomers identify the major parts of the solar system. They use computers, the library, and textbooks to find information on the planets, the asteroid belt, and the sun. Pairs of pupils get together and create a PowerPoint presentation on the solar system that is shown to the whole class. Additionally, our moon is studied, and learners create a drawing that depicts all of the phases of the moon along with the names for each phase. Lots of great learning in this lesson!
