The Sun sign is the only star in our solar system. It is a huge ball of fire shooting latein heat in all directions.  No living thing can survive without the Sun. All the planets in the Moon's use sun rays for their light. There are 8 planets in our solar system. They are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus,Neptune. Earth is the planet where we'd lived.Its third planet from the Sun after Mercury and Venus. It takes 365 days to revolve around the Sun.

The Earth looks blue from space because is mainly covered by water. TheEarth has one Moon, there are many planets that have more than one moon. There are some small rocky bodiesinner solar system that have been left overfrom the formation above the planet's these are called asteroid. Asteroids don't have enough gravity to pull them into the shape. I like our Sun.

Many solar systems together form Galaxy.  We live in the Milky Way galaxywhich is spiral in shape.  Many galaxies togethermake the universe.

 

Step 2.A poster work. The students work together in groups. Each member of the group is asked to tell his/her version of space planets and the groups have ten minutes in order to draw and write planets connection in a poster.

Step 3. Each group presents its project work.

  1. WARMING UP LYRICS. OUTER SPACE: "WE ARE THE PLANETS"

Step 1. Students are given the sheet of paper song and sing together with Storybots.

STORYBOT 1

We can see the whole Solar System from here.

STORYBOT 2

I think we can hear it from here too.

ALL PLANETS (CHORUS)

We are the planets of the Solar System

Different sizes for every one

The music never ends

We are such good friends

And we all orbit the sun

SUN

Here comes the Sun rapping first on this track, from the beginning

I'm the center of the solar system, planets be spinning

Around me, so hot, I'm roasting, ya see?

Now I pass the mic to the planet closest to me

MERCURY

Mercury! The smallest planet, small as Earth's moon (MOON: "Yo!")

I get super hot and cold and I spin very slow

VENUS

I'm Venus! I've got mountains and volcanoes that spray

I'm the same size as Earth but spin the opposite way

EARTH

Yeah, I'm Earth, I'm the home to every boy and girl

(Sung by Stars) Such a beautiful, beautiful world

MARS

I'm Mars, the red planet, I've got deserts and ice

And I've got two moons - nice - that's like one moon, twice!

JUPITER

I'm Jupiter! the biggest planet, I'm humungous, gargantuan

I spin the fastest, rap the fastest, plus I'm handsome, BAM SON!

SATURN

Oh please, I'm Saturn, check out my beautiful rings

Made up of billions of rocks, dust, and other things

URANUS

I'm Uranus, I say that with pride, okay, I lied

I'm embarrassed 'cause I'm the only planet lying on its side

(Uranus lies on its side and the mic flies to Neptune)

NEPTUNE

I'm Neptune, I'm cold, dark, windy and mysterious

I'm very stormy, so bring an umbrella - I'm serious

ALL PLANETS (CHORUS)

We're the planets in the Solar System

Different sizes for every one

The music never ends

We are such good friends

And we all orbit the sun

STORYBOT 1

Well, we are done exploring the Solar System.

STORYBOT 2

I am thirsty. Let's explore the rest of the Milky Way Galaxy.

  1. SPEAKING“A TRIP TO THE MOON”
