Forming a Solar System

FAS

Summary:
We moved on to a new topic today, and this where Unit 5 really starts to get interesting. The topic was “forming a solar system.” We discussed how the clumping of matter naturally occurs in outer space due to gravity. And how the size and composition of these clumps means that they can form asteroids, planets, moons, or even stars. We then discussed our own solar system, including it’s shape and components. At then end of class, students drew their own solar system on the back of Page 512. Both today’s notes-sheet and the PowerPoint are posted below.
