Gravity and the Birth of Our Solar System - Legends of Learning

In this series of science games, your students will learn the story of our solar system — specifically the Nebular Theory — including the time frame of the birth of the solar system, how the sun and planets were each formed, and what will become of the solar system in the distant future. The Gravity and the Birth of our Solar System learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.

This lesson is accompanied by eight (8) standards-based science games and a teacher-crafted lesson plan, which can be found at the following link:
