OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

Man has been on the Moon and we are now trying to go to Mars. 
What do you know about the Moon or about Mars? 
And what do you know about the rest of our solar system? 
Let's find out together!

1. Choose a planet/moon (work alone or in groups of 2). 
The Sun, the Moon and all 9 planets have to be chosen, so there have to be 11 'groups'!

2. Search for information. Use the links here or find others. You can also look at Finnish pages and translate into English. 
Use a dictionary! (laita sana suomeksi tai englanniksi - ohjelma kääntää!)

 Dictionary 1: http://efe.scape.net/index.php
 
Dictionary 2:  http://www.tracetech.net/db.htm

3. Write your information in Word and save it + print it out at the end of the class
We will continue with this next time!
