For our project we designed a 3rd grade lesson to teach students about the position of the Earth in space. Our goal was to create a simple, fun, educational way to teach children about the interesting and exciting facts of how our solar system works.

project overview
Project overview:

The lesson plan will include the following requirements in order to meet Arkansas’s framework of education guidelines:

  • It will demonstrate how the planets orbit the sun.
  • It will demonstrate how the Earth and it’s moon orbit around the Sun.
  • It will also relate how the Earth’s rotation around the Sun correlate with Earth’s days and nights.

Arkansas Frameworks:

ESS 10.3.1 ESS 10.3.2 ESS 10.3.3

NS 1.3.3 NS 1.3.7

will it serve the community
Will it serve the community?
  • Our project will serve the community in several ways:
  • We will helping teachers to teach their students the valuable information about space.
  • We will getting the information about space out to more people through our contacts.
  • We will be advertising that 2009 is the

Year of Astronomy.

does it meet course objectives
Does it meet course objectives?
  • To learn what planets are, and the names and order of the planets. Planet attributes can also be learned.
  • Demonstrate how the planet orbits the sun
  • Demonstrate the orbit of Earth and it’s moon around the sun
  • Relate Earth’s Rotation to the day/night
what technology will we use
What technology will we use?

We will be using:

  • The Internet
  • MySpace
  • Face book
  • PowerPoint
  • Word
  • Video camera
what did we learn as a team
What did we learn as a team?

We learned:

  • Arkansas frameworks for 3rd grade science
  • How to use MySpace and Face book websites
  • How to rely on others and work together

Grade 3 Science

  • I’m a Planet
  • Brief Description
  • Some students will "become" a planet so the names and order can be reviewed. The teacher may wish to show pictures of the planets and name a few of the planets' attributes.
  • Learning Objective:
  • To learn what planets are, and the names and order of the planets. Planet attributes can also be learned.
  • Demonstrate how the planet orbits the sun
  • Demonstrate the orbit of Earth and it’s moon around the sun
  • Relate Earth’s Rotation to the day/night.
  • Materials:
  • For each student:
  • Drawing paper
  • Crayons or markers
  • For the Lesson:
  • Book with planet pictures
  • Flashlight (if considered appropriate)


Prior to Lesson- in the Computer Lab: Review with students the different characteristics of each of the planets (power point presentation).Using either Paint or Word have students "draw" the nine planets using the shapes on the tool panel. Students should try to adjust the sizes of each planet in relation to the others (i.e. Pluto should be the smallest). The students should then go back and add the special characteristics unique to each planet. For example, Mars should be red and have two moons above it. Mercury should have smaller circles on it to represent its craters. Each planet can then be labeled.

Other suggested activities:

Class Activity: The following distance scale can be used to construct a model of the solar system along six meters of a classroom wall. Make a large circle of white paper to represent the sun. (It's the Earth's atmosphere which makes the sun look yellow.) For each planet, draw a dot and write the name on a piece of paper. Tack or tape the papers to a wall at the distances indicated on the scale. From the edge of the sun, the distances are:

We had to modify our lesson plan do to the class having most of the children under grade level and several who did not speak English very well. We gave them the pre-quiz, then showed them the PowerPoint and then let them chose to do a word seek puzzle or to draw a picture of their favorite planet.

  • Big star
  • Made out of gases called hydrogen and helium
  • Very Hot
  • It holds the solar system together
  • Gives to the Earth:
    • Heat
    • Light
    • Energy
  • Spins around it axis
  • Generates space weather
  • All planets orbit around the sun
  • First planet
  • Closest to the Sun
  • Smallest planet
    • Because Pluto was classified as a dwarf
  • It has no atmosphere to retain heat
    • But it has a thin exosphere made of atom
  • Rotates three times during every two orbits
  • No moon
  • Spins slowly
  • Eight largest from all the planets
  • Inner planet
  • Second planet
  • Similar to planet Earth:
    • Similarities of Venus and Earth are:
      • Size
      • Mass
      • Composition
      • Distance from sun
  • Venus spins very slowly
    • 243 days to spin around it axis
    • Spins Backward
  • Very hot temperature
  • Venus has no ocean
  • Brightest planet in the sky
  • Atmosphere made of carbon dioxide
  • It has volcanoes that do not erupt
  • Inner planet
  • Third planet away from sun
  • Our home planet
  • The only planet that has all the necessities for us to survive
  • Earth is made of:
    • Air
    • Water
    • Land
    • Life (including humans)
  • Only planet to have liquid water on our surface
  • Spins very quickly compared to other planets
    • 24 hours to spin around it axis one time
    • It orbits the sun in 365 days
  • Big oceans
  • Atmosphere full of oxygen for us to breath
  • One moon
  • Volcanoes that are different from other planets because they erupt.
  • Inner planet
  • Fourth planet
  • Its called Red Planet
  • Its surface has been changed:
    • By volcanism,
    • The impacts from other bodies
    • The movements of its crust
    • The atmospheric effects such as dust storms.
  • Spins very quickly

  • Outer planet
  • Six planet
  • Yellow Color
  • Second largest one
  • It has rings

  • It takes 84 years to complete one orbit around the sun
  • One day is 17 hours long
  • Rotation axis is horizontal
    • This unusual orientation may be the result of a collision with a planet-size body early in Uranus's history

  • No solid surface
  • A gas planet
  • 27 moons
  • Outer planet
  • Eight planet
  • Blue Color
  • It has a Great Dark Spot
  • Atmosphere made of methane gas
  • It orbits the sun once every 165 years because it is so far away.
  • One day is 17 hours long
  • Axis of Neptune's magnetic field is 'tipped over' by about 47 degrees, compared to the planets rotation axis
  • 8 moons
  • Outer planet
  • Dwarf planet (is a celestial body that (a) is in orbit around the Sun, (b) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape, and (c) has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit.)
  • Very small
  • 248 years to orbit the sun
  • It’s moon is Charon
    • half the size of Pluto
    • shares the same orbit
    • Charon and Pluto are a double planet
  • Due to its lower density, its mass is about one-sixth that of the Moon
