5th Grade Science
Our students are currently learning about the solar system. To help the students understand everything in our solar system, they are working through a webquest.
Before the webquest, students were able to draw the planets to scale. This helped them realize how big the sun really is compared to the size of the planets.
Students will need to know that the sun is the center of our solar system and that the planets move around the sun, in a predictable pattern.
It is also important for the students to know:
- the difference between a rotation and a revolution.
- why we have seasons
- the role of gravity
After the webquest, students will be learning about:
- lunar and solar eclipses
- comets, asteroids, and meteoroids
