    Here’s how I would teach about the planets in my classroom.

    1.Introduction: Start by introducing the concept of the solar system and the planets that orbit the Sun. Show models of the planets to engage students.

    2.Planet Song: Introduce the planet song to your students. Encourage them to listen to the song and follow along with the lyrics.

    3.Visual Aids: Use PowerPoint of the solar system to help students visualize the planets and their positions relative to the Sun.

    4.Interactive Activities: Play the Planet Game and ask children what names of planets they can remember at the end. Do the Planet Dance.

    5.Sing Along: Have a sing-along session where students can sing the planet song together. This can be a fun way for them to memorize the order of the planets while enjoying a musical activity.

    6.Planet Facts: Share interesting facts about each planet as you go through the song. Encourage students to ask questions and spark discussions about interesting facts of each planet. Memorise the order of the planets from the song using GoNoodle – My Very Excellent Monkey Just Served Unicorn Noodles.

    7.Assessment: To reinforce learning, children will complete a kahoot quiz on the planets.
