What is in this Course?

During this short course, we’re embarking on an amazing journey to explore the fascinating outer planets of our solar system! Get ready to be amazed as we discover the wonders of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Each of these planets has its own unique features and qualities that make them truly special. We’ll also learn about the different materials that make up these gas and ice giants.

After watching a fun video with Gavin and Dr. Karl, students will choose one of the outer planets and conduct some research. They can use diagrams, paragraphs, bullet points, and even tables to present their information. They’ll then get to use their creative skills to design an awesome eight-page booklet all about the planets in our solar system.

This course is all about letting your imagination soar, learning new information, and having fun!
