Week November 7-11, 2016
The following information is required:
What is the distance of the object from the Sun? Is there water present in any form? What is the composition of the atmosphere? In order to finish on time, do not spend too much time searching and do not get off task.
Conduct research for each of the following components in the solar system:
- Sun 2. Mercury 3. Venus 4. Earth 5. Earth’s moon: Moon 6. Mars 7. Jupiter 8. Jupiter’s moon: Europa 9. Saturn 10. Saturn’s moon: Titan 11. Uranus 12. Neptune 13. Dwarf planet: Pluto 14. Asteroids 15. Comets 16. Meteoroids
As you research, create a file to keep your research.
You can create a google document and insert a table.
You can create a slide show on google slides.
You can use index cards.
Add an image of each object to your research
Record the following information for the object:
Proximity to the Sun: may include high and low or average temperature or average distance* Presence and form of water: indicate if present and whether it is frozen, liquid, and/or water vapor Composition of the atmosphere: indicate if atmosphere is present and the elements found in the atmosphere * For objects 14–16, the information about the distance from the Sun varies with specific objects and other variables. For these objects, describe approximate location for the proximity from the Sun, rather than temperatures or actual distance.
