This is a 6-10 week cross-curricular unit focusing on planets. It is a great way to end the year as the students are in charge of each step of this project.
I teamed up with my math and science teacher to complete this unit. She checked the fact cards for accuracy and I completed the research and writing portions.
Students research a planet and write a research paper based on their planet. At the end of the unit, students grouped up and created a group PowerPoint about their planet that they presented to the class.
