Be a Planet
"Be A Planet" is a classroom game that assists teachers in teaching the names, order and attributes of the planets by having students represent each planet of the solar system. Start by calling the first student to the front of the class to act as the sun and have her hold a flashlight to represent heat and light. To provide a subtle hint, choose a student whose name begins with the letter M to be the next planet—Mercury—and continue the progression of planets in a similar fashion. As more students join the group, have the entire class announce which planet each child represents and provide information corresponding to each planet using books and photos.
