5th Grade Science TEKS Planning Guide: Our Solar System
**Updated for Streamlined Science TEKS for implementation in 2018-2019 school year**
Who is this for?
5th grade Texas teachers using the TEKS and Science Penguin resources
What is it?
This is a two-week schedule of activities to teach students about what causes day and night and to compare and contrast the Sun, Earth, and our moon (Unit 8). The majority of the activities themselves can be found in the Texas Science Mega Bundle
or on my personal website.
This is my planning guide based on 5 days a week with 60-70 minute departmentalized classes. Every campus, teacher, class, and student is different, so trust your professional judgment when planning for your students.
