Asteroids, Comets, Meteors

$0.00

In our Asteroids, Comets, Meteors lesson plan, students learn about what asteroids, comets, and meteors are and how they are different from each other. Students learn related vocabulary and practice identifying each.

Description

Our Asteroids, Comets, Meteors lesson plan introduces students to asteroids, comets, and meteors, discussing the characteristics of each. Many people are confused between the three and information is given to help students identify differences. During this lesson, students are asked to use the content page information and Internet resources to draw a picture of an Asteroid, Comet, and Meteor, and list at least 5 facts about each below their drawings. Students are also asked to review provided facts and decide if they’re related to an Asteroid, Comet, or Meteor, testing their ability to differentiate between them.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define identify characteristics, and compare/contrast asteroids, comets, and meteors.

Good resource for developing knowledge

The resource was helpful in developing my students general understanding of asteroids, meteors, and comets. It helped them distinguish between them and cleared up some misunderstandings they had.

Great article and work to accompany.

Studnets enjoyed and easily followed work. Article well written and organized for students to learn information from. I used this as a send piece because after the planets, the students wanted to learn more about space objects. This was the perfiect download for them!
