  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>
