Task

Your task is to create a poster board that includes the pictures of the 8 planets and the sun.

You will also need information on the planets.  YOU MAY INCLUDE THIS ON THE POSTER BOARD IF THERE IS ROOM, OTHERWISE PUT IT ON NOTE CARDS.

The information you will need to include can be found below.  Try to include at least 5 of the topics for each section.

Along with that information, you will draw a picture, with color, of the planet or the sun.

You will divide your poster board into 9 sections for all of the pictures.  For more information, see Process.

Here are information topics:

Mass:  In this area you are to find the planet's MASS or WEIGHT.

Area:  Here you will include the planet's AREA.

Atmosphere:  In this area you are to find out if the planet has an atmosphere, and if so, what is it composed of?

Gravity:  Does this planet have a gravitational system? If so, how much would a 100 pound person weigh on this planet?

Characteristics:  What does this planet look like?  What is the planet made of?  Does it have any of the same characteristics of Earth?

Climate: What is the average temperature of this planet?  Could humans survive on this planet?  What's the weather like?

Moon(s):  What moons does this planet have if any?  Give the number of moons and the names.


EXTRA CREDIT:  Include the dwarf planet Pluto for extra credit! (You may have to find information on you own.)
