    • Name:  _________________  #  ____           Date:  ________________     Solar  System  Project   Due:  Thursday,  February  5,  2014      Now  that  we  have  studied  our  solar  system  it’s  time  to  show  what  you  know  with  an  at-­‐home   project!    You  will  be  responsible  for  creating  a  model  of  the  solar  system  that  includes  all  of   the  planets  (including  the  dwarf  planet  Pluto)  and  the  sun,  choosing  a  planet  or  other  space   related  subject  to  do  a  written  report  on,  and  giving  an  oral  presentation.   Solar  System  Model:      The  model  you  create  must  include  all  nine  planets,  including  the  dwarf  planet  Pluto,  and  the   sun.    You  can  create  your  model  in  a  variety  of  ways,  but  it  may  not  be  bigger  than  20  inches   long,  18  inches  wide,  and  18  inches  tall.    You  can  make  a  mobile,  a  three-­‐dimensional  poster,   a  model  using  Styrofoam  and  kabob  sticks.  .  .there  are  a  lot  of  possibilities!    You  will  need  to   clearly  label  each  piece  in  your  model  and  title  it  as  well.    Get  creative  and  make  it  realistic.    All   of  the  planets  are  not  the  same  size,  color,  or  distance  from  the  sun,  so  take  all  of  those  things   into  consideration.   Report:      Write  an  informational  report  about  a  topic  related  to  the  solar  system  or  space  that  you   choose.    You  can  choose  a  planet,  asteroids,  the  black  hole,  the  Mars  Rover.  .  .  there  are  many   possibilities.    Become  an  expert  on  it  by  looking  up  information  in  books  from  the  library,  on   the  internet,  on  educational  movies  or  shows,  or  at  museums.    Fill  out  the  graphic  organizer  to   help  you  decide  what  information  you  should  include  in  your  report,  then  write  your  report  in   paragraph  format  either  by  hand  or  by  typing  it  on  the  computer.    Include  at  least  one  picture   or  drawing  of  the  subject  you  have  studied,  along  with  any  notes  or  copies  of  the  information   you  used  for  research.   Oral  Presentation:      You  will  give  a  short  (2-­‐3)  minute  presentation  to  the  class.    In  the  presentation  you  will  need   to  tell  the  class  what  you  chose  to  study,  why  it’s  important  to  our  solar  system,  at  least  five   interesting  facts  about  it,  and  answer  three  questions  from  the  class.    At  this  time  you  will  also   show  the  class  your  solar  system  model.    You  may  use  notecards,  but  please  do  not  read   straight  out  of  your  report.
