Use Crayola® Gel Markers to add a colorful diagram to a report on the natural cycles of the solar system.
Invite students to explore a variety of resources to gather information about the solar system. View models, visit a planetarium, and search school libraries and the Internet for appropriate resources.
Organize students into cooperative groups. Each group is to select a specific planet for an in-depth investigation. One group may want to research the sun. Another group may want to select Pluto, even though its status has been reclassified as a dwarf planet.
Students organize their group research into written reports or an electronic presentation. Included in the research should be an explanation of the selected planet's cycles and patterns.
Using Crayola® Gel Markers and an index card, students prepare a name tag for each member of the group. Attach name tags using masking tape. The order of group members will be in relation to the sun. Students create a moving solar system, simulating planet rotational cycles.
If so desired, students plot the planets using Crayola Crayons and Erasable Colored Pencils in a large diagram. This can assist by creating a visual to accompany students reports.
Research the stories behind the constellations in the night sky and then connect the stars to see them for yourself!
