The students will use the planet Choice Board to select a planet to research. I am using EPIC books as the online tool for students to use for research. The planets on the choice board are linked to the EPIC collections. If you want students to use different sources than EPIC, you can change those out according to your preferences. Please note: The Choice Board is editable and the link is provided below.

Conceptual Understanding: Astronomy is the study of objects in our solar system and beyond. A solar system includes a sun, (star), and all other objects that orbit that sun. Planets in our night sky change positions and are not always visible from Earth as they orbit our Sun. Stars that are beyond the solar system can be seen in the night sky in patterns called constellations. Constellations can be used for navigation and appear to move together across the sky because of Earth’s rotation. Performance Indicators: Students who demonstrate this understanding can: 4.E.3A.1 Develop and use models of Earth’s solar system to exemplify the location and order of the planets as they orbit the Sun and the main composition (rock or gas) of the planets.
