The Solar System – App Lesson

Description: This app lesson will develop elementary school science students’ solar system understanding.

Instructional Objective: Students will develop an understanding of the Earth’s solar system. Students will recall the names of all of the planets and then be able to reproduce a model that represents their knowledge learned from the standard in a 3-D Model.

Step 1: Students will read Section 1 of volume 1 on the Galaxies by Kids app. Here, they will be able to get a good background knowledge on the Milky Way and general information about the planets.
