Description

Students will love these activities on gravity in the solar system. Students will make a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and in the solar system. Parts of this can be used for Distance Learning.

This resource is aligned with NGSS MS ESS1-2
Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.
From the Earth’s Place in the Universe in the Next Generation Science Standards

MS ESS1-2
Students will learn about the impact of gravity and inertia on creating orbits. Students will read three pages of informational text and answer comprehension questions. Students will experience a lab activity and a demonstration that will help further explore the concepts of gravity and inertia. Students will make models and evaluate them. They will think critically and explain their thinking on response pages and interactive notebook flaps. This resource also includes lesson plans, lab directions, lab write-ups, note-taking guides, QR Code Research on the Solar System, Video Links, and more. and
This resource is aligned with the Utah SEEd standard 6.1.2

Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity and inertia in the orbital motions of objects in our solar system. This is part of the Structure and Motion within the Solar System.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
