   WRITE your Frame of reference (where I found out what I know
   about it……) HERE


                           WRITE what you
                           know about the

                                Solar
                               System
• What?
  We are going to learn about the planets in the solar
  system we call home.

• How?
  Groups are going to research a single planet or two
  then you are going to move around the class and
  summarise other groups research in a graphic
  organiser.

• Why?
  By looking at other planets we will realise how well
  planet is suited for life which will help us understand
  the chance of aliens existing in future lessons.

Information you must have on your desk:
• The size of the planet compared to earth (e.g.
  It is four times wider than earth)
• The mass of the planet compared to earth
• The distance from the sun to the planet in km
• Describe what it is made of and what the
  surface / atmosphere is like (e.g. temperature)
• How many moons or rings does it have?
You could include:
• Who, When and How it was discovered
• Why it is called the name it has been given
• Speed and Shape of the planets orbit

   HOW WELL CAN YOU VENN?
• Try to include as many planets into
  your Venn diagram as possible!
• Hint – the “Bubbles” don’t have to be
  planets. On could be “has moons”
  and another “no moons”. How many
  bubbles could you have?
• The Biscuit Challenge has 6 Bubbles –
1. Bread
2. Crackers
3. Biscuits
4. Chocolate Bars
5. Chocolate covered biscuits
6. Cake
