Soaring the Solar System
Teams will successfully identify and label as many solar system-based objects as possible in a 15-minute time frame.
- 1 copy of Solar System exam per team
- Copy (or copies) of the Solar System handout
- 1 Pencil per student
Setup Give each team 20 minutes to study a diagram of the objects in our solar system. Encourage them to think of ways to memorize each object; for example, they can categorize by type of body (planet, moon, etc.).
