Activity Overview


While students are learning about the discoveries that led to the current heliocentric model of the solar system, have them focus on the story of Galileo Galilei. In this activity, students will create a narrative of Galileo's discovery of Jupiter's moon. You can also encourage students to research other important discoveries related to the solar system and create narratives for the scientists involved.

For an alternative to this assignment, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. Students can focus on one narrative or several discoveries that came led to the current model. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options and adjust the instructions accordingly.
