THE SOLAR SYSTEM
Teacher Name: Danijela Banko
Grade: 2nd and 3rd year Hotel and tourism technicians
Subject: Interdisciplinary
Topic: The Solar System
This lesson introduces students to the key properties and features of the planets in our solar system.
Goals:
 The students will be able to identify the nine planets and all their features and characteristics. The students will be able to understand the interaction and organization in the solar system and the universe and how it affects life on Earth.
Objectives:
 Given an outline of the solar system, the students will identify the planets in the solar system and list 3 features for each. Given a worksheet, the students will distinguish between the inner and outer planets and their relative distance from the sun.

Goals:
 The students will be able to identify the nine planets and all their features and characteristics. The students will be able to understand the interaction and organization in the solar system and the universe and how it affects life on Earth.
Objectives:
 Given an outline of the solar system, the students will identify the planets in the solar system and list 3 features for each. Given a worksheet, the students will distinguish between the inner and outer planets and their relative distance from the sun.
Introduction:
Students are handed out the nine planets cut into pieces of construction paper and they will have five minutes to list the planets in order from their distance to the sun. This will activate prior knowledge of the solar system. The teacher will then do a pre-reading concept map. Once this activty is completed,the teacher will then give students a KWL worsksheet to start working on. Next,the teacher will read a section in the book as students follow along in their texts. The teacher will then lecture and gives notes. Students will then refer to their KWL chart and fill in what they have learned so far. They will also write down any questions they may have. The students will also complete definitions for the keys terms; planet, solar system, hydroshere, gas giant, satellite and moon. Following this assignment,students will re-read this section in a group of no more than four students on the inner and outer planets, and then organize what they have learned in a chart for both. One heading should be similarities and the other should be differences. Students will fill in their charts by describing each planet's simillarities and differences to the other inner planet and then to the other outer planets using information form the text.
Development:
 The students will be required to draw a post-reading concept map by using the main topics of the inner and outer planets of the solar system and then write three propositions from the concept map.
Practice:
 The teacher will ask students various questions about the planets in the solar system. Also have students develop a phrase that will help them remember the order of the planets. *Note* Each word should start with the first letter of the planet.
Closure:
 Before the students leave the class they will have to name at least one planet and feature of that planet.

OTHER OBJECTS IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM
Teacher Name: Danijela Banko
Grade: 2nd and 3rd year Hotel and tourism technicians
Subject: English
Topic: Other objects in the solar system
Asteroids, Meteoroids, Comets, Dwarf planets
Lesson Objectives
Locate and describe the asteroid belt.
Explain where comets come from and what causes their tails.
Differentiate between meteors, meteoroids, and meteorites.
Introducing the Lesson
Show students the animation at the following URL without telling them what it represents. Ask them if they can identify what it shows. (They are likely to recognize the sun and the nearly circular orbit of a terrestrial planet such as Earth, but they may not recognize the highly elliptical orbit of the comet.)
