Astronomy Week Lessons?

I downloaded the Solar System lesson, but I want to add more content and activities to it so that I can use it with my class. I am looking for some ideas and for some advise. Has anyone else uploaded the Solar System lesson? Would anyone else be willing to share their customized Solar System lesson? Thanks!

Boxlight Mimio Training is AWESOME!

Hi Fred,

Great idea! Please have a look at all of the wonderful training options Boxlight Mimio offers. As a classroom teacher myself, I used many of these to learn how to use these products in my classroom. Boxlight Mimio even offers LIVE Mimio Quick Learn sessions.

I do not have a customized

I do not have a customized Solar System lesson (yet) but I was brainstorming some interactive activities you could add. If you have the MimioMobile maybe you can have them complete a crossword puzzle, or use they can just go up to the board. While I was looking for outside sources I found out that NASA's website has a collection of interactive videos along downloads that you could add to the lesson. Those videos would probably be more geared to high school, however.

Astronomy week

Hey Joe, I used many things from the gallery and added some things of my own. I will download mine. One thing that my 4th grade students loved doing was putting the planets in the correct order. I made it a game with 4 students per group and each group was timed. The group with the fastest time won- in my class this meant they got a skittle. Amazing what they will do for one skittle. :)

I added more questions

Hey Joe, I added a few more Vote questions to the Solar System lesson. I am also getting iPads next year. I am really excited to try out the collaborative part of the lesson. I will upload and share my version of this lesson tomorrow when I get to school.
