This is a worksheet that can be used to pre-assess what your students know about the movement patterns of the Earth, planets, and the Sun.
It consists of a word bank of 5 words, 5 fill-in-the-blank questions, and a section at the bottom for students to illustrate what they know about the movement patterns of the Earth and planets around the Sun.
Very simple and easy to administer and it gives you a great idea of what your students know about the movement of celestial bodies in our solar system so that you can shape and differentiate instruction accordingly.
This worksheet can even be used as an assessment tool after a lesson on orbits and planetary movements around the Sun.
