The database lessons incorporate information about our solar system by following two robots from the fictional company S-SPACE (Solar System Planets Are Cool Enterprises) on their mission to find the perfect location to build a S-SPACE City. This lesson’s setting is Saturn. You might want to show and discuss facts about Saturn with students before they take the EasyTech lesson. In particular:
o Review how Saturn’s ring names are letters assigned in the order of ring discovery (not in the order they appear around Saturn). o Make sure students know the roles Galileo and Giovanni Cassini played in the discovery of Saturn’s rings. o Explain how Saturn’s rings are made up of ice particles.
You might want to introduce ascending and descending sort order to students to prepare them for the EasyTech lesson. Ascending sorts organize in 123ABC order, and descending sorts organize in ZYX987 order
Remind students about filters, and explain how students can sort all data or filtered data in a database program
