Description

Our The Solar System lesson plan introduces students to the solar system, including the planets. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create a to-scale model of the planets, using a compass; they are then asked to glue the planets to a poster, label them correctly, give their solar system model a title, and answer questions about the planets. Students are also asked to complete a crossword puzzle using lesson vocabulary in order to demonstrate that they understand the relevant terms and definitions.

At the end of the lesson, the students will be able to name the planets and other objects of the solar system, identify facts of the planets, compare and contrast the planets, and effectively research one of the eight planets.
