4S Learning Activities 08.07.20

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all well.

Please find the next couple of days work set for you below.

Science Project:

  • The Solar System!

I would like you to research how many planets there are in our solar system. What are they called? Can you order them? Can you find out three facts about each planet? You can present your work in a PowerPoint, word or on paper. I would love to see these when you are finished so please feel free to forward this work onto ks2@stgeorges.darlington.sch.uk

Second activity:

Can you find out the following answers to these challenges?

  • Which planet orbits closest to the Sun?
  • Which planet has the highest maximum temperature?
  • Which planet has the shortest day?
  • Which planets are made of gas?
  • What is the Earth’s atmosphere made mostly of?

Third activity:

Choose a planet of your choice and create a paper-mache model of this planet. You will need a balloon, newspaper, glue and paint! Tell me why you have decided to choose this planet. Once you have finished please evaluate your work. What worked well? What did you find challenging? If you were to do this activity again, would you change anything? If so, what would you change?
