                  Mercury
 Closest to the sun.
 Surface is similar to
  moon heavily
  cratered.
 Temperature on
  surface ranges from
  -180 to 430 degrees
  Celsius.
                    Venus
 Similar to earth in
  size and gravity
 Surface is covered
  with reflective
  clouds
 “terrestrial planet”
 Volcanic surface.
                   Earth
 Largest of the
  terrestrial planets
 Surface made of
  many tectonic plates
 71% of surface is
  covered with salt
  water the rest of
  surface consists of
  continents and
  islands.
                        Mars
 Known as the “Red
  Planet”
 Seasonal cycles very
  similar to Earth
 Evidence of an
  existence of large
  body’s of water in the
  past.
 Other than Earth Mars
  is the planet most likely
  to harbor life
                   Jupiter
 Largest Planet
 Has no solid
  surfaces (gaseous
  planet)
 90% hydrogen 10%
  helium
 Three distinct layers
  of clouds
                  Saturn
 Less dense than
  water
 Has three rings
  made of ice, rocky
  debris and dust
 Saturn is an oblate
  spheroid (flattened
  at poles)
                 Uranus
 Gaseous planet
 One pole faces the
  sun continually for
  42 years, then
  switches and has 42
  years of darkness.
 First planet to be
  discovered by
  technology.
                   Neptune
 Farthest planet from
  sun
 Has highest winds of all
  the planets (1,500 mph)
 Very cold surface but
  the core is 13,000
  degrees Fahrenheit (
  hotter than the sun’s
  surface
                  Pluto
 One of three “dwarf
  Planets”
 Mostly made of rock
  and ice.
 Discovered in 1930
 Many things are
  unknown because
  no space craft has
  visited Pluto.

Curriculum-     (Space Science Unifying Concept B) E.8.B.2 Students know
Nevada State    characteristics of the planets in our solar system.
Standard:
Objectives:     Students, in a group, will construct and present accurately-scaled
                models of the planets in our solar system, reflecting each planet’s
                characteristics. The students will be able to give a 5 minute
                presentation.


Instruction-    I will introduce the basic characteristics of each planet in our solar
Procedures:     system. The students will then break off into groups of 3 or 4. They will
                choose a planet they wish to research. The group will create an
                accurate model of the planet and prepare a 5-10 minute presentation for
                the class. As a class we will display the planets around the room.


Assessment-     The planet must have the appropriate color, size, and additional
How will you    characteristics. The presentation must be 5-10 minutes of valuable
check student   information.
