The activities written for younger learners are 1, 2 and 3 and 4:
Using interactive games, children will learn to recognise the names of the eight planets in the Solar System and they will learn that planets revolve around the Sun. This introductory lesson will give children an understanding of planets in the Solar System, in preparation for further topics on other objects, such as asteroids and comets. This Solar System song is a lovely way to start the lesson nad is also very catchy!
Meteorites are heated on their path through the atmosphere of the Earth. Using this context, children will learn the difference between a star and a ‘falling star’, and how friction can cause heating effects. Lots of links to drama activities.
In this activity, students learn about craters that can be created by impacts from space. The resource describes an activity to measure the size of craters by varying the mass of balls, or by varying the height dropped into sand. Children can create graphs to present their findings.
This activity uses the context of Philae's landing to explain why unsupported objects fall towards Earth and why spacecraft need to make a soft landing. It is also great fun to make and design a lander to protect an 'egg' astronaut.
These short animations tell the story of Rosetta and Philae and are a great introduction to running activities.
