Analyze and interpret data to
determine

scale properties

of objects in
the solar system.


Understand the concept of a ratio as a relationship between two
quantities.


Understand Unit Rate


Solve real world mathematical problems with ratios



Students use charts, maps, and graphs to
answer questions dealing
with people, places, events, or environments.


Students demonstrate an ability to organize and process spatial
information; i.e., You Are Here maps of various areas.


Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development,
organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Conduct short research projects to answer a question, drawing on
several sources and refocusing the inquiry when appropria
te.

Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources;
assess the credibility of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data
and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and providing
basic bibliographic information for sources

Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis,
reflection, and research.


Come to discussions prepared having read or studied required
material; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence on
the topic, text, or i
ssue to probe and reflect on ideas under discussion.







Overview:
You will create a scale model of the universe by finding the ra
tio of each planet using online
resources. Student will create a solar system walk

for the community to demonstrate unde
rstanding of
individual planets and our place in the universe.

Materials:
Journey into Space notebook, Walk through Space lesson plan, Walk through Solar system
activity,

3D graphic organizer of the Solar System, Calculators, Chalk, Paper, Computers, A
rt s
upplies,
interactive

journal, paper,
Meter sticks
, non
-
fiction Solar System books, internet, posters

Procedure
:

1.

Create a KWL chart
(Formative assessment)

2.

Discuss ways or formats to record info
in a systematic way: Foldable
-
graphic organizer

for the
Science Interactive

Journal.

Create the foldable as a class that incorporate all the planets and
their sizes.


3.


With partners

use the internet and kids astronomy to find information on each planet and write
facts into the organizer
.

Then watch t
he planetary posse video to add more details in notes.

4.

Use the Planet Size tool and find the scale of the planets using ratios.

5.

Create a brochure on the teams planet using data collected.

(Language Arts Assessment)

Then
present the information to the class. (Science Assessment)

6.

Students will calculate the scaled distance and diameter then use the
scale chart to build a map
of the solar walk. (Social Studies Assessment)

7.

Students will create posters and newspaper arti
cles to invite public to the Solar Walk.

8.

Students will present information and answer questions to the public while they are on the
created scale model walk of the universe. (Speaking Listening Assessment)

9.

Math Assessment will be to see if the distance is
in the appropriate area for the scaled model.
