Welcome to Saturn – Lord of the Rings! The Simple Schooling Planet: Saturn unit study begins with distance and conversion calculations between miles and astronomical units once again. Students will learn all about Saturn’s orbit, atmosphere, and go a little more in depth to the different types of hydrogen and how we use liquid hydrogen and super conductors here on Earth.
Students spend much of their time discussing Saturn’s awesome ring system as well as a few of the larger moons. The unit wraps up with a look at the past and present missions to Saturn by NASA and the European Space Agency.
