Last week the children began to explore all about the Solar System.  After creating our class wonderings, we discovered that “planets” had the most questions to be answered so we decided to start our inquiring here!  The children used non fiction literature to help them learn about the sequencing of the planets in the Solar System, what they looked like from space and found a few facts out about each planet.  Our next step will be for each child to become an expert on one of the “nine” planets.  Below are the focus questions the children came up with for their research.

 

They will then join together after researching, to teach each other what they learned.  Finally they will use their new knowledge to explain the big question “How is the Solar System interconnected?”
