# Solar Systems Worksheet

Improved Essays
Objective:
• Understand the relationship of the nine planets in our solar system to the sun by creating a three-dimensional representation.
• Understand the planets relative size and their distance from the sun and the earth.
Preparation:
Purpose:
To introduce the ideas of our solar system and enrich their understanding of the world around them
Materials:

• Newspaper strips torn about an inch wide
• String

Steps:
• First I would divide the students into nine groups. Then I would assign each group a planet.
• I would then assign them a worksheet so they can get some background knowledge on the plants and our solar system. I would ask simple questions that they would easily be able to find in a science textbook or on the Internet. I would
After the group has chooses a location, I would then hang the planet model to the ceiling using the string an d s clips and have the group attach their planet information worksheet to their model.
Closure:
Hands on activities are a great way for ids to retain new information as it makes it gives them something to refer back to. To help the kids fully understand the ideas in depth I would teach a short lesson going back over the planets we discussed and go more into depth than simply their color and how far away they are from the sun as the children would have taught each other earlier in the lesson.

Possible extensions on this topic: To explain more about the moon and how its apart of our solar system I would give students a chart on which they are to draw the way the moon appears each night for a month. As students come in each day and share their observations, tell them the name of the phase of the moon they saw. When the full moon is approaching, ask them to predict what the next phase will look
Discuss air, temperature, landscape etc. Then I would ask the students what they know about Mars and talk about what it looks like.
Steps:
• First I would tell students that they are going to compare Earth and Mars and that were going to find similarities and differences between the two planets.
• I would then split the class in half. Having one side find out simple facts about mars and once group find simple facts about earth.
• I would have each child write down one fact on a sheet of paper. I would make sure there are no repeat facts and that they are facts that would make it easy to compare planets.
• I would have a large vein-diagram in the front of the classroom with an Earth side, a Mars side and a “similarities” side in the middle.
• I would have each child read their fact to the class and then decide where on the diagram it would go with help from their classmates.
• Following this activity I would have a brief discussion on the vein-diagram and we would discuss what traits would be good for supporting life and why other traits might make it

I could talk with my students about how the civilizations that blossomed after the Agriculture Revolution could be distinguished based on their physical and human characteristics. We would first go over what both physical and human characteristics are and then I would have the students take turns listing the different characteristics of the civilizations that they are learning about. Some of the characteristics to be discussed are plants, animals, architecture, culture, language, religion, jobs, economic activities, and governments. The students could even work together to create a compare and contrast chart about the different…

The national curriculum in England for Science (2014) intends that pupils should be able ‘to describe associated processes and key characteristics in common language using technical terminology accurately’ (Scholastic, 2013). Children are required to use discussion to work together to enhance their ideas and address any misconceptions they have. Earle and Serret (2015: 119) have put forward ways in which we as teachers can ‘…encourage children to participate in a science-based dialogue’. We must hook them into the lesson using a stimulus like a giant footprint (Earle and Serret, 2015). We must give children time to think and someone to talk to (Earle and Serret, 2015) using think, pair, share for example.…

On October 5, I did my first read aloud in a first grade classroom. The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry and The Big Hungry Bear is about a mouse who picks a fresh ripe strawberry from a tree. As he is picking the strawberry, an unknown narrator begins introducing the mouse to the story of the Big Hungry Bear. The narrator goes on to say that the Big Hungry Bear can smell the strawberry from a long distance, can recognize it anywhere and can even find the strawberry if it is hidden. Of course, the mouse is frightened.…

Before my three week block, one of my PDP goal was to improve my classroom management and time management. For first two weeks, I have been working on these two areas because I did not feel confident in managing the classroom without my co-op teacher there in the kindergarten room. I learned that when I was planning my lesson, I had to think about what time I am teaching and how they are going to respond to my lesson. Since my kindergarten class had strict routine, for first few days, I did not get their full attention because my lesson occurred during their centre time. Throughout my lesson, they would ask when they are going to have centre time, and did not put much effort into their task was one of the things I had to think about as I was…

I can use this questionnaire as a bridge to connect with the families.…

Conventional methods of teaching are loathed for their intention of manipulation & control. Having seen through something of ourselves that we do not seem to trust, Education itself is a process, where the subjects’ (students) potential is being stimulated; curiosity gets directed towards their self-actualizations. This can be achieved via a single approach that conducts teacher-centered teaching, alternatively doable via multiple approaches such as self-supervised learning, which seems to be significantly more efficient as well as more preferred by students. A series of evidence suggest that ‘paper & pen’ learning is remarkably outperformed by ‘actions, limbs and sensations’ learning. Not only because such approach enhances instant and…

Through this course I have seen that students learn science many different ways, but not all those ways are the best for learning. The best way that this 4th grade teacher could teach this weather and climate lesson/unit is by having the students be involved in hands on activities! If the students are able to go outside and record data for themselves they would really get to know the material better and be able to retain this information in their long term memory. They can look at patterns they see over a weeks span, different types of clouds, temperature, and variation over time. Having students participate in an interactive activity like observing and recording, they will most likely always remember doing this because it is something different.…

Model Scenario During recess on a sunny August afternoon, I noticed several of my students gathered together on the sidewalk. I walked over to see what the fascination was about, and found that one of the students had several types of magnets and other materials. The students appeared to be genuinely interested in discovering what would and would not attract to the different types of magnets. Once we returned to the classroom, several students made statements about characteristics and abilities of magnets that they believed true.…

A science conception that I would make into a fun activity is that all metals are attracted to magnets. I would have my scientists work in groups and each group would have different pieces of metals. The students would use a chart to fill in which metals were attracted to the magnet and which were not. I would then ask the students to write a story together about the different metal pieces, making each piece of metal a different character. In the story the students must implement which metals did not attract to the magnets.…
