Solar System Presentation and Quiz

http://www.childrensuniversity.manc...er/flash/earthandbeyond_c_stamp.swf Added: 29 Aug 2016 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Assessment / Presentation

A very visual and student friendly resource to use when learning about the solar system. The animation allows students to interact with the solar system planets by clicking on each planet to learn more about the planet. A way of remembering the order of the planets is then explained and students must interact with the animation in placing the planets in the correct order. A quiz on the planets is located at the end of the animation with three basic questions.

Strand: 02. Earth and Space

Strand unit: 02. Scientific Model: Orgin of the Universe

Suggestions for use: This resource relates to the new Junior Cert Science curriculum.

Starter task: Ask students to state the meaning of classification. - Relate to relationships between objects.
Task 1: Brainstorm on the board using students ideas; what methods we have for representing correlations between objects. (Bar chart, Pie chart, Line ...etc)
In groups, ask students collect data about the students in the class and represent this data on a their chosen charts.
Students should stick their charts on the walls.
Allow time for students to walk around and view other groups ideas.
Task 2: Give each group the set of laminated cards given. (link for cards; need to laminate and cut).
Ask each group to decide on a correlation between the planets and to represent the correlation visually.

Once complete, students stick their posters on the walls around the room. Allow time for class to walk around and review the posters/ take pictures of their work for portfolio.

Plenary: Put the teacher correlation on the board (image ->) and ask students to identify the what is being classified and what is the relationship being represented.
