Teacher shows a video of Solar System and asks them if they guess what our theme for this lesson is.

Teacher elicit information from the video: students identify the object in the middle of the Solar System (the Sun) and about the place we are living (the Earth).

Teacher divide students into 2 groups and gives them worksheet of the Solar System (handout 1). Teacher inspires students to think about planets they know.

Students present their ideas to the whole group (whole group discussion)

Teacher elicits answers on the board.


Teacher informs students about the topic of the lesson “Space and Earth” and introduces the lesson objectives.


2. Teacher tells the students the objectives of the lesson

To know all the names of the planets of Solar System and describe one of them.

3. The main part of the lesson

Teacher returns to the discussion of the planets in the Solar System and writes the remaining planets’ names students do not know on the board.

Students pronounce them, teacher monitors students to spell the names accurately.

Teacher suggests students to read the information from the whiteboard about planets. Then they divide them into the groups: rocky planets, gas giants and according to the mass of the planets.





Then teacher asks students place the planets in the order of their distance from the Sun.







Teacher asks students to choose one planet and gives to students blank sheets of paper where students write the chosen name in the middle of the paper. Students read the names of chosen planets. Teacher monitors students to spell the names accurately.

Additional information

Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners?

Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning?

Critical thinking

Differentiation by support

More support:

· Monitoring

· Allow thinking time.

More-able learners:

· Encourage students to participate in discussions providing level related questions

· The teacher observes, guides and monitors the students helping with spelling. Oral feedback after completing tasks.

It stretches their imaginations and thinking forcing them to contemplate the stars and planets.
