  • I liked the Spanish and English parts, but my favorite part was the story where the siblings share information learned. The pictures were also a great addition. It really helped them to see the different sizes of planets and the differences between comets and asteroids.

  • It is well presented. The way you organize the information will make easy for ELL to understand the content.

  • Great additions for the ELL student. Solar System vocabulary can be difficult for even the non-ELL student to grasp, and you have done a great job presenting the new terms for both demographics of students. The information is also presented in a manner where it would be simple for a student to go back and find specific information.

  • I love how thoughtful you were with your ELL students. I struggle with ideas all the time for my ELL students. (especially in science) I think that the visuals were very helpful! I also loved that your questions made students go into the text!

Our solar system Presentation Transcript

  • 1. The Solar System Evelyn Montanez RED 6545 Online Actions in Reading Spring 2014
  • 2. COMMON CORE STANDARDS SC.5.E.5.3 DISTINGUISH AMONG THE FOLLOWING OBJECTS OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM, SUN, PLANETS, MOONS, ASTEROIDS, AND COMETS, AND IDENTIFY EARTH‟S POSITION IN IT. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.5.2 SUMMARIZE A WRITTEN TEXT READ ALOUD OR INFORMATION PRESENTED IN DIVERSE MEDIA AND FORMATS, INCLUDING VISUALLY, QUANTITATIVELY, AND ORALLY. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.5.2D USE PRECISE LANGUAGE AND DOMAIN-SPECIFIC VOCABULARY TO INFORM ABOUT OR EXPLAIN THE TOPIC.
  • 3. Chris came home from school excited to share with his big brother Nick what he had learned in school that day. His teacher, Ms. Wilson, had discussed the Solar System and the different objects in the Solar System. They had even created a model of the Solar System and reviewed the vocabulary terms to help them understand the new science concept. ELL: Chris le conto a su hermano, Nick, sobre lo que aprendio de el Sistema Solar y los objetos que existen en el Sistema Solar.
  • 4. “Nick, here is the vocabulary list I have to study. Ms. Wilson also had them translated in Spanish. Neat, huh? Will you help me and say the word correctly and I will repeat it?” English asteroid comet crater dwarf planet orbit planet Solar System sun Spanish asteroide cometa crater planeta enano orbita planeta Sistema Planeta sol
  • 5. Chris began with, “The Solar System is a star system and the different objects in space such as the Sun, 8 planets, moons, asteroids and comets.” ELL: El Sistema Solar contiene el sol, las ochos planetas, lunas, asteroides, y cometas. What pattern forms when the planets orbit around the sun?
  • 6. Chris asked Nick, “Did you know that the Sun is the largest object in the Solar System and it is made up of hot gases?” “Yes!”, replied Nick. “The Sun is in the center of our Solar System which gives off light and other forms of energy we need to survive on Earth.” Describe the sun? When do you see the sun? When do you not see the sun? ELL: En el centro de el Sistems Solar se contiene el Sol. El Sol arma luz y otras formas de energia nosotros necesitamos para sobrevivir en La Tierra.
  • 7. Chris added that the eight planets are nearly round objects that orbit around the sun in an oval shaped pattern called elliptical. “Nick, what does orbit mean?” “Orbit means „to travel around’. The planets orbit around the sun”, said Nick. ELL: Las planetas orbita el sol. Orbita significa dar la vuelta el la forma de un ovalo.
  • 8. Which picture demonstrates the word “orbit‟ ? ELL: Cual foto demuestra “orbita”?
  • 9. The inner planets are also called the rocky planets because they have a rocky surface. They are the smallest planets and are closest to the Sun. The inner planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. ELL: Las cuatros planetas cercana el sol.
  • 10. The outer planets surface are made of gases and are also called Gas Giants. They are the largest planets and farthest away from the Sun. The outer planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. ELL: Las planetas mas alejada de el sol.
  • 11. INNER PLANETS Mercury The smallest, fastest, and closest planet to the sun. Venus The 2nd planet to the sun. Almost same size as Earth Earth The 3rd planet to the sun. The 4th planet to the sun. Known as the blue planet because 70% of surface is water. Known as the Red Planet due to the heavy amount of iron on its surface. Surface covered by craters Hottest planet Temperature: 467 to -183 degrees Celsius, has extreme temperatures – too hot or too cold Temperature: 465 degrees Celsius Only planet to have known life. Length of rotation: 243 Earth days Temperature: 58 to -88 degrees Celsius Length of rotation: 59 Earth days Length of revolution: 225 Earth days Length of rotation: 24 hours Has no moons Length of revolution: 365 days Length of revolution: 88 Earth days Has no moons Mars Has one moon: Luna Temperature: -30 to -100 degrees Celsius Length of rotation: about 1 Earth day Length of revolution: 687 Earth days Has two moons: Phobos and Deimos
  • 12. OUTER PLANETS Jupiter Saturn The 5th planet from the sun The 6th planet from the sun Largest planet Second largest planet Its famous Red Spot is a rotating storm Has many rings Has rings Temperature: about -168 degrees Celsius Temperature: -145 degrees Celsius Length of rotation: 10 hours 14 minutes Length of rotation: 9 hours 56 minutes Length of revolution: about 12 Earth years Length of revolution: about 29.5 Earth years Uranus Neptune The 7th planet from the sun The 8th planet from the sun Third largest planet from the sun Similar to Uranus; blue surface due to methane gas Has blue surface due to high methane gas Is very windy Is tilted on its side and rolls like a ball Has rings Has 11 rings Temperature: -214 degrees Celsius Temperature: -216 degrees Celsius Length of rotation: 16 hours 7 minutes Length of rotation: 17 hours 14 minutes Length of revolution: 165 Earth years Has at least 60 moons Length of revolution: 84 Earth years Has at least 62 moons Has at least 13 moons Has at least 27 moons
  • 13. “You are right, Nick! The planets are all different, but I always wondered what happened to Pluto. Why is Pluto not a planet anymore?” “Well, Pluto is a dwarf planet?” said Nick. “What is a dwarf planet?” asked Chris. Nick explained the term „dwarf‟ meant “too small” and the planet Pluto planet was too small to be either an inner or outer planet. So in 2006, Pluto was no longer considered one of the major planets in our Solar System. ELL: Una planeta enano significa un planeta muy pequena para ser considerada una primaria planeta. En 2006, Pluto fue clasificado como explaneta.
  • 14. “Earth has one moon but some planets like Jupiter has about 62 moons!”, exclaimed Chris. “Our moon has craters but I am not sure what that means?” “Craters are holes on the moon‟s surface that are caused when objects in space collide, or bump into, the moon‟s surface. Let‟s look at some images online”, said Nick. What space objects cause the craters?”, asked Chris? ELL: La luna tiene huecos que se llaman “craters”. Objetos en el Sistema Solar forman estos craters cuando tocan el rostro de la luna.
  • 15. Two of these objects can be asteroids and comets, said Nick. “What are they?”, asked Chris. Nick explained both asteroids and comets have irregular shapes and can usually be identified as asteroids being large rocks, and comets as dirty snowballs. ELL: Aun los asteroides y cometas tiene formas irregular, asteroides aparecen como rocas grandes, y cometas como bolas de hielo susio.
  • 16. “An asteroid is a rocky object in space that's forms from space junk and orbits around the sun. It is smaller than a planet and is usually found in the Asteroid Belt found between Mars and Jupiter. A comet is a ball of dirt and ice normally found in the Kuiper Belt beyond Neptune. When comets get close to the sun, the sun vaporizes the ice, creating a tail. Let‟s look on the internet and see what we can find.” comet asteroids
  • 17. Observe this picture. How can you tell the difference between an asteroid and a comet? ELL: Como puedes detectar entre el asteroide y la cometa?
  • 18. “Nick, for homework I have to write a summary of the inner and outer planets. In my writing I have to include 3-5 vocabulary terms and a model of the Solar System. Will you help me with my homework?” “Before I do, name the planets in order of how far they are from the Sun,” Nick said. “Sure, after we have a bite of moon pie,” chuckled Chris.
  • 19. READER’S RESPONSE 1. Write a summary of what you learned about the Solar System. Elaborate using specific details and include 3-5 science vocabulary in your writing. 2. Create a model of the Solar System and include a drawing with appropriate labels of the Sun, eight planets, at least two moons, asteroids and comets.
