The Solar System

A worksheet which I blew up to A3 when covering the solar system basics with a year 7 class. Has space for pupils to write their own mnemonic to remember the order of the planets and boxes for pupils to write info about each of the planets individually. Would work well in combination with pupils using internet/book research to find the information for themselves.

Solar System Information and Diagram (KS3/SEN)

Here are information cards for various bodies within the solar system. Also included is a basic PowerPoint explaining the task and an A4 template. Place the information cards around the room and get students to create their own solar system diagrams. They can add varying degrees of information, and you can control the task by adding or removing pieces of information. I have also added a table that gives values for scaling the solar system, based on shrinking the Earth to 1 metre. This may be useful to explain to students or get them to calculate (higher ability) so that they can appreciate the scale of the solar system.
