Solar System:  Earth and Space SciencesQuick View

Solar System: Earth and Space Sciences

This lesson is an introduction to the solar system, and is part of a four-lesson series on Space Systems. This lesson supports MS-ESS1 (Earth's Place in the Universe of the NGSS). The handout and included answer key work together with videos and links found at http://www.howaboutscience.com/solar-system Students may work independently if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the videos can be projected and the handout filled out as a group. Once students complete the handout, discuss the answers and play the Kahout! (click the link on the home page to learn more about Kahouts!) The video materials chosen are based on length, clarity, quality and how closely they align with the national standards. The lesson could be added as an introduction or as further exploration and could be completed as one activity or broken into smaller segments. "How About Science?" materials can be incorporated into your existing unit in various ways depending on the ability level of your students and the availability of technology. Here are a few things to consider. If students are working individually it is helpful, but not required to have headphones or earbuds. If the sound is kept low even a large class of students can be successful without them. Also, because students find the directions very easy to follow, these are perfect for substitute teachers. And, because the videos are online, students with internet connections at home don't have to be at school to complete an assignment. My classes are typically action packed with labs and activities, but these video-based lessons require careful listening and focus. My classes are never quieter, which is kind of nice on occasion. Note! I would suggest doing a trial run before purchasing if you plan to have a large class of students working at individual computers. Internet connection speeds vary which may cause videos to load slowly. You might have everyone log on and try my free resource on TpT (or just go to a lesson and choose something) just to be sure you aren't going to have connection issues. If you do, then you can always project the videos and complete the handouts as a group.

Designing a Solar SystemQuick View

Designing a Solar System

Designing a Solar System is an activity that allows students to explore the dynamics of a fully-customizable set of celestial bodies. Starting with just a star and a planet in stable orbit, students can add planets, asteroids and meteors at varying distances and watch to see how each body’s orbit is affected. Students can freely play with this simulation, or can follow along with a worksheet to create specific solar system configurations. Topics addressed: Gravitation The interaction between stars, planets, asteroids and meteors in orbit Primary CT concept: pattern recognition. Students experiment with different combinations of planets, asteroids and stars in an attempt to find stable orbits for each. Students will be able to: Explain how adding various celestial bodies affects the orbit of specific planets Understand how solar systems are determined by interactions between all celestial bodies, not just the star and each planet Materials: Solar Systems web app: http://ct.excelwa.org/ctfiles/apps/solarSystems/solarSystems.html Student handout Suggested lesson breakdown: This lesson is incredibly flexible – with the provided worksheet, students can work through it and have some free time to explore other scenarios in about an hour, but you should feel empowered to create challenges on your own as well that align with the learning objectives you’re targeting. You could also structure this lesson as a competition – ie, who can create a stable system with the most planets?

Space & Solar System Video Links and Questions

The activity comes with 4 YouTube video links (entitled: The NASA moon landing, Life on Mars?, Galileo's Story, and Life on a Space Shuttle) along with small-group discussion questions. This activity worked great with my 7th graders and really engaged them in discussions. I would play the video twice and then let them discuss and answer the questions. This lesson is student-centered meaning: --it allows you to become a facilitator --happier teachers! --happier students! --happier administrators!
