Focus Questions: What is the motion of Earth in space? and Why doesn’t Earth fly off into space?
Content Objective: I can demonstrate application of how Earth and other planets stay in orbit by using my prior knowledge of Newton’s First Law of Motion using a ball(Earth) attached to a string(Gravitational force), and my hand (Sun) model to predict the following: what will happen when the ball is twirled above the head, if the ball(Earth) had more speed than the Gravity pulling on it, and if the ball (Earth) traveled at a slower speed.
Language Objective: I can write and draw(with labels) to explain why Earth and other planets stay in orbit around the sun.
Reflection- Sentence Stems:
The Earth and other planets stay in orbit around the sun because ______________________________ .
The ball and string model demonstrated this by ____________________________________________.
*For Drawing- Draw and label the Sun, the Earth, and use arrows to show gravitational force, and the path Earth is traveling.
**Challenge**: Why do you think the moon orbits Earth?
Vocabulary: orbit, elliptical, motion, rotation, axis, revolution, force,balanced force, unbalanced force, gravitational force
