Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

HS-ESS1-4

Description

Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.

The Kepler's Laws and Planetary Motion activity will help students understand how Kepler's laws relate to the orbit of the Earth and other planets. Students will draw and use data to come up with descriptions of Kepler's three laws of planetary motion.
