TASK: Space and the Solar System Pre-Test

Instructions:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIunr3E62rg&t=3s

This task is a pre-test and is to be complete by you alone and without using technology. It is to find out what you know at the moment. You can ask a parent or teacher to explain the task but they cannot tell you what to draw or write. The more you add and label shows me what you know. Once completed, please stick the sheets into your book.

There are 3 parts to the task:

1. DRAW and LABEL the Solar System. Think about the sizes and colours. If you think something moves, show motion with the use of arrows or provide short explanations.

2. DRAW and LABEL how day and night happens. Think about the sizes and colours. If something moves show motion with the use of arrows or provide short explanations.

3. DRAW and LABEL how the Seasons happen. Think about the sizes and colours. If something moves show motion with the use of arrows or provide short explanations.
