It is my hope that this will help your students become more
familiar with facts about asteroids and comets, but most
importantly, this is a great practice for reading and responding to non-fiction literature.
This passage could be used as an inquiry based project, leading students to further research about each space object. It could easily be used as an assessment in science or reading comprehension.
Keep in mind that these study cards were created as a part of a space unit bundle. If you feel that you will benefit from all the assessment related items, I have a "Solar System Assessment Pack". If you would like all of my Solar System unit materials, I have "Solar System Unit Bundle" which includes a test, study guide, reading passages, task cards and many other space related resources available at my TPT store. This can save you MONEY :)
As with all of my science based products, I have designed this to make your life easier. Simply print and go! Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
