Transcript of "5th Grade Earth Science"

  1. 1. The Solar System and Friends… well, sometimes David Serpa Cohort 21 Tech 290 17 September 2008
  2. 2. Standards <ul><li>The solar system consists of planets and other bodies that orbit the Sun in predictable paths. As a basis for understanding this concept: </li></ul><ul><li>1.Students know the Sun, an average star, is the central and largest body in the solar system and is composed primarily of hydrogen and helium. </li></ul><ul><li>2.Students know the solar system includes the planet Earth, the Moon, the Sun, eight other planets and their satellites, and smaller objects, such as asteroids and comets. </li></ul><ul><li>3.Students know the path of a planet around the Sun is due to the gravitational attraction between the Sun and the planet. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Launch Screen Topic 1 Topic 2 Topic 3 Topic 4 References
  4. 4. Topic 1 <ul><li>The solar system consists of planets and other bodies that orbit the Sun in predictable paths. As a basis for understanding this concept: </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Beginnings <ul><li>Geocentric Thinking </li></ul><ul><li>The Greeks </li></ul><ul><li>Their Proof… Look Up, Duh! </li></ul><ul><li>The Church Approves  !!! </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Ideas, Oh How They Change <ul><li>A Change from Geocentric Thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Heliocentrism </li></ul><ul><li>Nicolas Copernicus </li></ul><ul><li>Uh-Oh, Someone’s Not Happy </li></ul>
  7. 7. Modern Thinking <ul><li>Galileo Galilei </li></ul><ul><li>A New Invention, The Telescope!! </li></ul><ul><li>Newton and His Laws </li></ul><ul><li>The Hubble Telescope </li></ul>
  8. 8. Topic 2 <ul><li>Students know the Sun, an average star, is the central and largest body in the solar system and is composed primarily of hydrogen and helium. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Basic Facts About the Sun <ul><li>Our Sun is actually… well, average </li></ul><ul><li>The sun is the largest object in our solar system </li></ul><ul><li>It contains approximately 98% of the total solar system mass </li></ul>
  10. 10. What is the Sun Made of? <ul><li>Materials we find here on Earth </li></ul><ul><li>These materials are called elements </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Hydrogen and Helium of the Sun <ul><li>hydrogen & helium make up 99.9% of the sun’s elements. </li></ul><ul><li>Wow! There is a lot of conversion going on up there. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Topic 3 <ul><li>2.Students know the solar system includes the planet Earth, the Moon, the Sun, eight other planets and their satellites, and smaller objects, such as asteroids and comets. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Our Galaxy <ul><li>The Big Bang Theory </li></ul><ul><li>Spinning and Heating </li></ul><ul><li>Shrinking and Heating </li></ul><ul><li>A Star is Born </li></ul>
  14. 14. Our Solar System <ul><li>Terrestrial Planets </li></ul><ul><li>Gas Giants </li></ul><ul><li>Pluto & Eris </li></ul><ul><li>Satellites </li></ul>

  16. 16. Topic 4 <ul><li>3.Students know the path of a planet around the Sun is due to the gravitational attraction between the Sun and the planet. </li></ul>Gravitational Attraction Hey Earth, How You Doin’? Lookin’ Good Sun!
  17. 17. Gravity <ul><li>Objects don’t change direction unless… </li></ul><ul><li>A Force of Attraction </li></ul><ul><li>Mass… Whatd Ya Call My Momma? </li></ul>Darn, I hate gravity!!
  18. 18. An Easy Explanation <ul><li>Ball and String Demo </li></ul><ul><li>Hand = Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Ball = Earth </li></ul><ul><li>String = You Guessed it, Gravity </li></ul>
  19. 19. Common Misconceptions <ul><li>That’s an Orbit! </li></ul><ul><li>The Fall of the Space Shuttle </li></ul><ul><li>So, Do Astronauts really float? </li></ul>Man, that’s a long ways to fall!!!
