For this project, I created a project based learning lesson plan titled, "Our Solar System." This lesson plan addresses the Alabama State Standards for 2nd Grade Earth and Space Science. The standard that I chose has to do with identifying basic components of our solar system. There are so many fun, creative ways to learn about the solar system. To kick off this lesson, the students will watch a fun, educational Youtube video titled, The Solar System Song. The students will be put into groups of 4 and assigned a planet. Throughout the week, the students will do research on their planet and create a Google site about their planet. At the end of the week, the students will present their sites to the class and create a collaborative blog post that includes a link to their site.
