EDIM 508 – Digital Media in the Classroom Instructional Purpose & Usage Scenario
This media-infused presentation will be incorporated into our 5th grade unit on the solar system. The presentation is designed to help students better understand the characteristics of the solar system (i.e. planets, other bodies, the Sun). The students will be presented with a variety of digital media, including video and audio files to help them identify key characteristics.
Standards Alignment: New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards
5.4 Earth Systems Science
5.4.6.A.2 Construct and evaluate models demonstrating the rotation of Earth on its axis and the orbit of Earth around the Sun.
5.4.6.A.4 Compare and contrast the major physical characteristics (including size and scale) of solar system objects using evidence in the form of data tables and photographs. Can you name the nine planets in the solar system? Study the image below and record your answers on your Google Doc spreadsheet.
The planets in the solar system are divided into two categories: inner planets and outer planets. As you watch the video segment, identify which planets fit in each category. What characteristics do the inner planets have in common? What characteristics do the outer planets share? Are there any similarities between the inner and outer planets?
In this video segment you will learn about the rotation of Earth on its axis and how it orbits the Sun. How does Earth’s orbit around the sun impact daily life for us? For example, what happens to the part of the day when Earth is facing the Sun?
The following image portrays how Earth’s orbit around the Sun is responsible for the different seasons we experience in the Northern Hemisphere. What are the four distinct seasons we have in the United States? Besides the Sun and the nine planets, what other objects are contained in the solar system? Keep this question in mind, as you view the next video segment. How are scientists able to study the solar system? You will listen to an audio clip that will give us some insight on how scientists accurately examine the characteristics of the solar system. Citations
