Not Like The Others: Planets

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through September 30th, 2022. Join today!


Students will research and analyze four planets to determine which is not like the others.

Which of these four planets is not like the others?

Of course, the twist is that they all could be the one that doesn't fit in. Here's a reason for each one, but there are certainly more:

  • Mercury - only one with no moon
  • Neptune - only one not visible to naked eye
  • Saturn - only one with a moon that has an atmosphere
  • Mars - only one with human-made objects currently on its surface

⚠️ It's key that students look beyond the photos in this video. They should be looking up information, citing their sources, and getting their brain sweating. Don't accept so-so thinking!

Inspired by the fantastic website and, of course, Sesame Street
