Use toilet paper to show kids the real distance between planets! Great way to drive home how vast space is. I don't teach science, but awesome!
Teaching the solar system using toilet paper to show the planet distance- this would be good with tape on the outside wall
simulate planets distance from the sun using toilet paper! Such a fun science idea! Cross curriculum with math ( sci not. Or scale models)
Teaching the solar system using toilet paper to show the planet distance.. interesting.. I like it

...I was super lucky to be placed with an amazing intern this semester - she's going to be an awesome teacher soon - and she took the class outside to play with toilet paper. Well, actually, there was a scientific purpose. She had groups of students roll out the toiler paper and place a cut-out of each planet at their scaled distance from the sun. It really helped the kids get an idea how far the planets are from each other...

BB Part 4 - Solar System Posters
Hello, hello, and welcome to part 4 of my 10 part series, Blog Backlog: Playing Catch Up! I'm really enjoying getting to share some blog worthy things from the last month or two of school. Today I'm sharing a simple, yet easy, meaningful, and fun science activity. My favorite science topic in 5th grade is SPACE! Here I am modeling wearing my planets t-shirt that I bought just for teaching this subject! I was super lucky to be placed with an amazing intern this semester - she's going to be an awesome teacher soon - and she took the class outside to play with toilet paper. Well, actually, there was a scientific purpose. She had groups of students roll out the toiler paper and place a cut-out of each planet at their scaled distance from the sun. It really helped the kids get an idea how far the planets are from each other. Unfortunately, with all of the things that happen in our final quarter, sometimes there just isn't enough time to do as many in-depth activities in science that I would like. I needed a quick and meaningful way for my kiddos to get to know our Solar System. So, I came up with these simple Solar System Posters. I had the students take a sheet of 17" x 22" copy paper and fold it in half lengthwise (hot dog style!) They opened it up and cut along the crease to create two long pieces of paper. They then glued these together with about an inch or two of overlap to make an even longer paper. Next, we folded this to create 12 sections... so we folded it in half, then in thirds, then in half again. Then students labeled each section... * Sun * Mercury * Venus * Earth * Mars * Asteroid Belt * Jupiter * Saturn * Uranus * Neptune * Pluto * Our Solar System Students used their science books to research each section of the solar system. As you can tell, the focus wasn't on just the planets, we included the sun, asteroid belt, and our dwarf planet friend Pluto! In each of the sections the students wrote at least three important facts about that part of the solar system and included a colored illustration. I absolutely loved their illustrations and they looked great hanging on the wall in our room. I find that some of the best and most meaningful activities are projects where students get to complete their own research and use their own creativity. I hope you enjoyed part 4 of my 10 part series, part 5 will be up soon!

Toilet Paper Solar System Activity-I did this with third graders…it was AWESOME! I had a child stand at each spot where a planet would be located. The first 4 were practically on top of each other, the last two were out the back door…really got the point across!

How do you educate children about constellations during daylight hours? Here's how! We have created and professionally die-cut cardboard medallions with holes to represent each individual star in a constellation. When light shines through the medallion, the image of the constellation appears. This can be done indoors using a flashlight to make the conste...

2nd grade Social Studies/art class
Switch up the landforms project?!
I pass my old students daily in the hallways and it never fails to amaze me how BIG they get! They often pop in to say hi and my current class loves it when "big kids" visit! Mostly so they can pepper them with questions! Most often they ask "What was your favorite thing you did in second grade?" and making landforms is high on the list! Our Continents, Oceans and Landforms project is always a huge highlight and a whole lotta fun! We start by reviewing continents and oceans (first grade spends a lot of time on this) then identifying and defining different types of landforms. We worked with vocabulary, classifying landforms as water or land features, labeling continents and oceans on maps, and defining different types of landforms in our literacy centers. Next we used Crayola Air Dry Clay to build imaginary islands. Our islands had to have at least three landforms. They could be completely made up but needed to be in a real ocean near a real continent. We made these on a Friday so they could dry over the weekend. On Monday we painted our islands. Next, we made maps of our islands. We just finished our unit on map skills and I love this PowerPoint from Teacher's Clubhouse! I use it every year and keep it up as a reference while my class makes their maps, map keys, compass roses. Students named their islands and drew maps that featured all of their landforms, a map key and compass rose. We carried this topic over into our literacy centers and writing block. This is my favorite part! My kiddos did some very creative writing and wrote imaginary personal narratives about life on their islands. First we brainstormed a list of adjectives to help set the tone, maketheir writing stronger, and give their reader a more vivid mental picture. We did some prewriting to solidify our ideas. Next, we orally rehearsed our ideas turning them into a story with a partner. We wrote postcards home to Mom and Dad from our islands too! After all of these elements were finished we glued the prewriting and final drafts into a folder with our postcard on the front and maps on the back to share with parents at our upcoming conferences. My kiddos begged to take their islands home as soon as they were finished but I didn't dare send them on the bus with a teetering paper plate! This way we could discuss their writing during our conference and Mom and Dad could carry the island home! These projects are keepers I tell ya! Click on any of the images if you'd like to do this landforms writing project with your class. You can find the lesson plan, reference charts,assessments, printables, literacy centers, and templates here. Happy teaching friends!
