Students started their planet research projects today. They choose partners and then drew names to pick planets. The students will spend the next couple weeks completing research on their planet to create a poster to present to the class at the end of the unit.
For more info and some excellent links on the planets, please check out the planet research page above. It also has a copy of the research guide – students do not need to worry about the Astronomical Units calculations. I had already printed out the guides and forgot to delete them from the assignment.
