1. The teacher will begin by drawing a big sun on the board. Ask the students if they know what it is and ask for volunteers to come up to the board and draw anything they can think of that is related to the solar system. Discuss what makes up the solar system - star, planets, asteriods: find out their background knowledge. If there are any words they don't know, explain using diagrams.
2. The teacher will let the students watch a video (song) about the solar system and the different planets.
3. The teacher will ask the students: i) What are the 8 planets? ii) Can they remember them all and in the right order?
