Lesson Title: Introduction to the Planets of the Solar System Materials Needed: Pencil Pictures of the Planets Chalkboard Colored Pencils/ Markers Assessment- cutouts of the planets Tape Blank Solar System Coloring Page Prerequisite Skills: Students should have general knowledge on what a solar system is and what it consists of. They should be able to discuss what planets are. A B C D Lesson Objective: After the fourth grade students have been the given the necessary material on the planets they will be able to correctly identify the order of the planets with no more than one error. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

## Interaction with Students:

1. Provide objectives: (What are students going to learn?) Time: 5 minutes Today, we are going to learn about the planets of the solar system. Can anyone tell me the names of our solar system? It is called the Milky Way and consists of eight planets and our sun. We will first learn the names of the planets and the order they are from the sun. We will work as in pairs to devise a way for all of us to remember the order of the planets and share these with the class. You may wonder why we are learning the order of the planets on the first day, but you will learn that by knowing the order of the planets it will help in our future lessons. For example, Mercury which is the planet closest to the sun is a very hot planet. 2. Demonstrate knowledge or skill: (Input/Modeling by the teacher) Time: 10 minutes I will introduce the lesson to the students by first showing the solar system with the planets in line. This will help the students to get an overall view of what the solar systems looks like. I will then hold up pictures of each planet starting with the sun. I will explain that all planets revolve around the sun and that this will be our reference point. I want to see where my students are with their previous knowledge of the planets. In this part of the lesson I will ask the students to shout out the name of the planet if they know them. I can then get a general feel for if my students can identify the planets by the photos. We will then work on ordering the planets in reference to the sun. I will go through the photos again and this time they will be in order from the sun. In this time I will play a song about the order of the planets to get students engaged and excited about the lesson.
