In order to ensure that the students have retained the information needed to satisfy the standard, they will be required to label a diagram of the solar system and answer questions about the planets in a game format.

S4E2: Students will model the position and motion of the earth in the solar system and will explain the role of relative position and motion in determining sequence of the phases of the moon.
