Hands-on learning is one the most engaging learning environments. With the 8th grade End-of-Instruction containing 47% of questions about the Solar System Unit, it is crucial that students are engaged and focused on the content of the unit. Currently, my curriculum lacks the engaging component within this unit and in order to best prepare students a hands-on component would be beneficial.

My students express fears of failing the end-of-instruction testing, therefore, I want to empower them with the content often presented on the test. The addition of hands-on, engaging solar system curriculum can help bridge the gap between curriculum and testing. My target population will be the 8th grade students in my class. However the material can be used in my career course as an exploratory career field study. In addition, our small campus allows us to share materials easily with the special education team in order to reinforce content for older learners. As a result of a hands-on learning unit, students can increase their understanding of the solar system while increasing their chance to score proficient or above on the end-of-instruction. Students will also engage in critical thinking,
