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.

Space Detectives

Students will gain a better understanding of the objects within our Solar System. How science and technology are used to discover new information. How robotic probes act as “space detectives” to gather, record, and report that information back to scientists & technologists.

Design a Space Station: Physics of Aerodynamics, Flight & Space

The “Aerodynamics, Flight & Sustainable Life” project utilizes research skills, MS PowerPoint, and Sketchup (free CAD software download) to allow students to build skills in those programs along with skills in Internet research, reading, writing and critical thinking. In these projects, students research information about the history of aerodynamics, Newton’s Laws of flight and the physics behind them. They replicate a scale model drawing of a NASA space vehicle using Sketchup (CAD) and then research and design their own space station or community that will fully sustain life in space. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be adapted for younger or older students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher Notes and Resources • Aerodynamics History PowerPoint project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Newton’s Laws Research Questions (includes answer key) • Recreating a NASA Space Vehicle in Sketchup Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Project Samples for NASA Vehicle • Designing a Space Station or Community in Sketchup Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Project Samples for Space Station/Community

Space: Science VocabularyQuick View

Space: Science Vocabulary

The essential vocabulary pertaining to the solar system, galaxies, and the universe, as well as vocabulary associated with space exploration are covered in this unit. Example: The planets turn on this axis, or ___, as they travel around the sun. As students progress through the 26 exercises featured, they gain practical knowledge about these fields of science. Simultaneously, they become familiar with 75 “space” words by practicing basic skills in reading, comprehension, word definition, spelling, and writing. Reinforcement activities range from writing definitions, matching, completing sentences through context clues, sentence writing, identifying syllables, puzzles, and much more. A separate Space Vocabulary page is included.

Space Science for Interactive Notebooks

This PDF includes 48 full pages of various flippables, graphic organizers and activities for an Interactive Science Notebook to be used during a unit on Space Science. Many of the pages include teacher answer keys, teaching tips, and common misconceptions to be looking for. Most foldables and flippables are left blank on the inside. This will allow you to fully customize each one for whatever curriculum or grade you teach with the information you want your students to know. Some ideas would be to use definitions, pictures, and examples. These also make a great tool to use for science differentiation as well! Pages include information on: •Reason for Night and Day & the Seasons •Motions of the Earth (and other basic facts) •Rotation vs. Revolution (Venn diagram) •Seasons Foldable with included inserts and links to great animations •What if?
