Activity Overview


A great way of remembering the names of the planets in the correct order is using the mnemonic ‘my very easy method just speeds up naming’. In this activity, students will label a model of the solar system. To add another lay of creativity, ask your students to come up with their own mnemonic for the order of the planets!

As an extension, have students create another diagram that orders the planets in order of mass, orbital period, year, discovery date, or average temperature. Alternatively, add a description box underneath each planet and have your students research more facts about each planet.

To make this activity simpler for students who are struggling, cut up an storyboard with just the planets and have students put the planets in the correct order.
