Our trip to the Solar System
Transcript of Our trip to the Solar System
learn the order of the planets in our Solar System and make a model of the solar system. To get the children interested in this lesson, they will be creating a model of the solar in a fun and creative way. There is a catchy Solar System song that can be sung or shown to the children to get them interested in the planets. This book also includes fun characters like the Cat in the Hat. Questions? Materials Questions? Materials Procedure Motivation Questions? Materials Objective Procedure Goal: Motivation Question???? Materials Needed Objective Procedure Goals Motivation Questions! Materials Objective Procedure Goal ...and our little friend, the dwarf planet... Let's meet the eight planets of our Solar System! Art, Motorskills, and Science Lesson Comprehension and science Lesson Lesson Lesson This is an after trip book because it is a story about the planets and this book also teaches about the planets. This is a before trip book because it helps children realize how big they are in comparison to space. This book also explains the orbit of earth in space, day and night, and the seasons in a simple understandable way. Goal: The students will learn about the different types of constellations. They will also learn about the stars, and what they are. Motivation: We will show the children videos
of rockets being built, and rockets taking off. that have all of the important pieces In this Lesson the children will put the planets in order from closest to farthest away from the sun by listening to the book, There Is No Place Like Space. The children will have a cutout of each of the nine planets laid out in front of them. They will also have a big piece of black construction paper with a Sun on the far left of the paper. As the story is read, the children will follow along placing each of the planets in the order they hear them. Each of the planets will be described in the book so it will not be too difficult to find the right planet. In no time, the kids have created a model of our Solar System and practiced listening skills!!! 18 cutouts of each planet (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto)
18 sheets of black construction paper with Suns
Markers What are some of the planets in our Solar System? What is the CLOSEST planet to the sun? What Planet do we live on? In this lesson, the students will learn about how a planet revolves around the sun and spins on its axis. They will also learn how many planets there are in space and what each planet generally looks lie and its name. By using a series of fun hands on activities the children will learn about planets and their orbits around the sun!! This lesson is filled with fun art projects and activities that involve getting up and being active. Using their own bodies and creations, they will make a model of our Solar System. The class of 18 will be divided up into two groups of nine.
Using Styrofoam balls, each child will make a replica of their planet by gluing on colored tissu paper and decorating however they like.
After they finish their planet the children will line up behind a helper with a big yellow ball (SUN) and the closest child t the the helper will be Mercury and the next will be Venus then Mars and so on.
The children will then circle the helper (SUN) spinning around creating their very own Solar System!! What was you're planet? What planet is closest to the sun, which one is furthest away? Can you count the number of planets in our Solar System? 18 Styrofoam balls
1 giant yellow ball
Tissue paper of all colors
Markers that it needs to fly. Procedure: The students will cut out the pieces of the rocket ship and then glue them onto a piece of construction paper. Then they will show it to the "rocket engineer" (one of the helpers) and they will "test fly" it. Objective:The students will create their own rocket ships Goal! Motivation: We will tell the students that whoever spots the most constellations at the planetarium will get to choose a prize from the treasure chest when we return back to school. Objective:The students will connect the dots in number order. By doing so, they will create a constellation. The students will learn about space travel,
and the parts of the rocket. -Worksheets
-Glue 1. Why couldn't the students go to the planetarium?
2.What happened to Ms.Frizzle in space?
3.Why shouldn't you go to close to the sun? The children will learn how the projector in the planetarium displays the stars. The students will all hear the story. Then They will make their own "projector". Children love punching holes in things :) Also they will get to make their project light up, and they will get to see what the planetarium might look like. -Paper bags
-Star-shaped hole punchers The students will hear the book. Then they will all go to their groups. Each child will get a brown paper bag, and we will put some mini flashlights on the tables. Then they will punch holes all around their bags with their helpers. Then we will turn the lights off. Then we will turn the flashlights on and place their bags on top of them. By doing so, the light will shine through the holes, creating a planetarium like atmosphere. 1.How are the stars displayed at the planetarium?
2.What types of things are displayed around around the room at a planetarium?
3.Why can't we see the stars in the daytime? Worksheets
Thinking caps The students will learn about the solar system, and how it began, and what it consists of. The students will create their own
story about how the universe began. The students will draw their own version
of the big bang theory. They will be
excited to write about their drawings. -Paper
-Pencils The students will all recieve a piece of paper, after hearing "Comic". Then they will draw their version of the big bang theory. Then they will tell their helper their story of how to universe started. Then depending on their age and capability, they will either write it, or their helpers will write it down. 1. How many planets are in our solar system?
2. Is the sun a star or a planet?
3. What is the closet planet to the sun? The students will get assorted
worksheets with different constellations
on them. They will then connect the dots in order,
starting at #1, and then working their way to the end. Once they are done connecting the dots, it will
reveal a constellation. 1. How many constellations are there?
2. How many planets are there?
3. When are we able to see the stars? Presentation By, Julianne Young Katelyn Wells Ally Levitt
