Transcript of Space Explorer

INNER PLANETS
SPACE
EXPLORER
Imagine it is now possible to travel to each planet in the Milky Way and a space explorer has offered to take you with her to two planets of your choosing! The only catch is you have to chose one inner planet and one outer planet.
You need to know more about where you are going so you can brag to your friends, so you have to do some research.

Pick one inner and one outer planet to explore, compare, and contrast.
Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune
OUTER PLANETS
Mercury
Venus
Earth
Mars

Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune
Focus question:

What are the differences and similarities between inner and outer plants?
LET'S START EXPLORING!
1. Choose your two planets (one inner & one outer).

2. Visit the site listed under your planet and the sites under the Bright Ideas section to learn more about them.

3. List the similarities and differences between your planets in an organized list, diagram or graph. Turn in a copy of your findings by this Wednesday.

4. BE CREATIVE! Create a presentation to share what you learned with your classmates. It's up to you to decide how you present your findings but you must have a visual aid and you must show clear differences and similarities between the two planets you have chosen. You may include extra interesting facts about your planets for extra credit.
Be ready to present next Monday.
BRIGHT IDEAS
