This game will require team work and will not only measure how fast your group can fit the correct pieces together but also how well you can locate the planets position in the solar system.
(Teacher will observe the time and evoke students to hasten in their activity. Stop the game when one group has completed the puzzle. Ask all the students to take a look at the completed puzzle, then to the remaining puzzles.)
Teacher: Congratulations to the winning group and good job to everyone. I would like everybody to go back to their seats. This time each of you will be reading silently. I will be giving you a book to read for 15 minutes. After reading I will ask some questions about the planets and anyone can answer then after we will be having another activity which you will do individually.
(The teacher will distribute the “Styrofoam Solar System Kit” to each student. Students will build their own solar system based on what they have learned from the day’s lesson. Teacher will play background music “Solarbeat” while students are doing their work.)
Teacher: Thank you and very good students. Now I will distribute this “Styrofoam Solar System Kit” for your last activity. Based on what you have seen on the video, what you read, and our previous activities, I want each of you to make your own model of the Solar System using this kit. The kit has styrofoam balls, rings, and rods to complete your Solar System. Each one of you will have to work on your Solar System until the end of class. If you are not able to finish building your Solar System, you can take it home, finish the installation and paint it accordingly. Bring it back and submit to me in our next meeting. While you are building your Solar System you will be listening to a music entitled “Solarbeat” by Luke Twyman.
