This 5th/6th/7th grade astronomy unit activity includes:
*a 24 page student activity book with 6 station activities, a group vocabulary assignment, an individual project and a pre/post assessment
*a 26 page teacher guide with instructions, answer keys, rubrics and more
By completing 6 station activities, students will learn about the planets, the phases of the moon, weight/mass/gravity, what causes the seasons and other objects in the solar system. The stations require 30-45 minutes each and include hands-on activities, computer-based simulated activities and reading activities. There is also a group vocabulary activity and an individual homework project that is completed during the unit.
Please note that the computer-based activities use the following website: www.teachersdomain.org. Also there is mention of our science textbook in a couple of stations, but that can quickly and easily be changed.
