lesson?
(You should include ALL
applicable standards. Rarely
do teachers use just one:
theyd never get through
them all.)

Essential Understanding
(What is the big idea or
essential question that you
want students to come away
with? In other words, what,
aside from the standard and
our objective, will students
understand when they finish
this lesson?)
MW: What one piece will
students walk away with
understanding after engaging
in this lesson?

Science Content Standard:


SC.5.E.5.3- Distinguish among the following objects of the Solar System- Sun, planets,
moon, asteroids, comets- and identify Earths position in it.
SC.5.E.5.2 Recognize the major common characteristics of all planets and
compare/contrast the properties of inner and outer planets.

Essential question: What are the objects of the Solar System, and where is Earth located in
comparison to these?

Objectives- What are you
teaching?
(Student-centered: What will
students know and be able to
do after this lesson? Include
the ABCDs of objectives:
action, behavior, condition,
and degree of mastery, i.e.,
"C: Given a sentence written
in the past or present tense,
A: the student B: will be able
to re-write the sentence in
future tense D: with no errors
in tense or tense contradiction
(i.e., I will see her
yesterday.)."
Note: Degree of mastery does
not need to be a percentage.)
Rationale
Address the following
questions:
Why are you teaching this
objective?
Where does this lesson fit
within a larger plan?
(Within grade level AND K5 education)
Why are you teaching it
this way?
Why is it important for
students to learn this

I am teaching this standard to teach students the objects that make up the solar
system and how they compare to each other.
It is important that Grade 5 students master these concepts because they are
annually assessed on Grade 5 standardized tests.
I am teaching it this way so that students are able to engage, explore, explain, and
evaluate their learning through questions and assessments.
It is important for students to learn where the Earth s position is in our solar system
and the common characteristics of all planets.

Summative:
Evaluate: Solar System Illustration
Teacher is looking for a complete illustration of solar system with description of each
planet including details of colors and whether its inner/outer planet. Asteroids and
comets will be included, and details of what they are.
For a teacher to teach this material it is important for them to know:
The sun is the biggest star in our solar system.
It's a big ball of hot gases which are converted into energy that is released into the solar
system as heat and light .The sun is our supply of daylight, heat, and the planets rely on
the sun to orbit. The orbits are not round. They are elliptical. Elliptical means egg-shaped.
What is a planet?
A natural object in space orbiting a star.
There are 8 planets in our solar system which orbit around the sun.
Mercury:
It's the smallest planet in our solar system.
It's a rocky planet, also known as a terrestrial planet.

Lesson Implementation
You will utilize the 5E teaching model for this lesson. Below, write out the purpose for each
phase of the 5E model.
Engage: The purpose of this stage is to create interest and generate curiosity in the topic.,
raise questions and elicit responses from students that will give an idea of what they
already know. During this stage students should be asking questions.
Explore: The purpose of this stage is to give opportunities to work together without direct
instruction from the teacher. The teacher acts as a facilitator in helping students frame
questions by asking questions and observing. In this stage students are testing predictions
and hypotheses and/or forming new ones.
Explain: In this stage students are encouraged to explain concepts in their own words, ask
for evidence and clarification of their explanation, listen critically to one anothers
explanation and those of the teacher. When explaining, students should use observations
and recordings, During this stage teacher will provide definitions and explanations using
students previous experiences as a basis for discussion.
Extend: In this stage students should apply concepts and skills in new situations and use
formal labels and definitions.
Evaluate: The teacher should observe students knowledge and/or skills, applications of
new concepts and a change in thinking. Ask open-ended questions and look for answers
that use obervations, evidence, and previously accepted explanations.

1. Name all the planets you can think of.
2. What object is at the center of the solar system?
3. What force keeps the planets from flying out of the solar system?
Formative assessment:
Instruct students on making a notebook entry of what they think the
solar system looks like. Encourage students to use labels and add any
details/words they know.
Explore: Planet Walk
Divide students into eight groups assign each student a number from
1-8. Students will work together to create the model of their planet.
Each group will get a description of the planet and materials to create
their model. The materials will be set out at each station ready to
begin.
Once every group is finished, find a large open space outdoors to
complete model demonstration.

Explain to the students, The process skills you used while creating the
charts were identifying characteristics. compare and contrasting
process skill when using the venn diagrams, and classifying when
listing the planets as rocky or gas giants.
Background Information:
Our Solar System is made up of eight planets, their moons, and our
sun. The planets and their moons revolve around, or orbit the sun.
The orbits are not round. They are elliptical. Elliptical means eggshaped.
The first four planets are called the inner planets. They are closest to
the sun. Their names are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. These
planets are made mostly of rock.
The next four planets are called the outer planets. Saturn, Jupiter,
Uranus and Neptune are called gas giants because they are made
mostly of gases.
Our solar system is made up of a star -- the sun -- eight planets, 146
moons, a bunch of comets, asteroids and space rocks, ice and several
dwarf planets, such as Pluto.
The eight planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn,
Uranus and Neptune.
Mercury is closest to the sun. Neptune is the farthest. Remember the
order of the planets like this: My Very Educated Mother Just Showed
Us Neptune.
Formative Assessment:
Students will now go back to their original journal entry of the solar
system and revise it based on what they learned. They will use a

Explain: Connection to vocabulary
Vocabulary words: atmosphere, ellipse, gas giant, inner planet, orbit,
outer planet, planet, rock planet, solar system.
Formative Assessment: Vocabulary Playdoh Sort
Each student will get one vocabulary word and use playdoh to make a
model of their word. Then everyone will receive an index card with a
different word and they will put it next to the model that best
illustrates that word.
Evaluate/Extend: Summative Assessment
Student will create an illustration of the solar system and label all
parts, note inner/outer planet. Model should include evident
characteristics of planet and color. A short description of each planet
will be included. This can be stapled in the students Interactive
Science Notebook or posted as authentic student work.
