3rd Grade-Week 2 Our Solar System

2nd Lab Session Week
We spent the week learning about planets, how they rotate while they orbit the Sun, their moons, and other bodies in our solar system.

Concept: The Night Sky
Class Reading: Read pgs 180-184 & 206-209.
Investigation: What objects do you see in the night sky?

  • Vocabulary
1.    Planets
2.    Asteroids
3.    Dwarf planets
4.  Comets

4d. Students know that Earth is one of several planets that orbit the Sun and that the Moon orbits Earth.
4c. Students know telescopes magnify the appearance of some distant objects in the sky, including the Moon and the planets. The number of stars that can be seen through telescopes is dramatically greater than the number that can be seen by the unaided eye.
