Solar System - BrainPOP

Students will enjoy a fun quiz to test their knowledge over the solar system.
I chose BrainPop because it is a tool I think it does a good job at grabbing the students attention.

This is a cute video going over the planets.
Students seem to love Jack Hartmann, so I think they would like singing along to it.

Students can see the different images that NASA has taken of the planets.
NASA is a reliable source and you know the information is accurate and up to date.

Solar System Videos | NASA

Students can watch videos that were taken on planets and in space and also learn about the missions.
I think the class would look forward to watching the videos, it would be like taking a virtual field trip.

Online 3D simulation of the Solar System and night sky in real-time - the Sun, planets, dwarf planets, comets, stars and constellations.
This website is so neat! Students can look at the major stars, the planets, and dwarf planets.

Review the environmental factors that make the Earth habitable and compare them to other worlds within our Solar System. Use creative thinking to design an alien life form suited for specific environmental conditions on an extra-terrestrial world within our Solar System.
This looks like a fun way for kids to learn. Not only are they learning about the different planets conditions, they're also able to create their own alien, which allows them to be creative and think even more about the planets.

Students can explore the different photos from the solar system.
