Revised 3-31-15! The activities in this package can be implemented in whole group during your Earth’s Place in the Universe science unit, in small group science stations, or during your literacy block in literacy stations. These project-based science stations will have your students researching the Sun, Earth, stars, and Earth’s Moon, reading about Earth’s place in the universe to complete graphic organizers for science notebooks, exploring Earth in lab situations, practicing 24 key vocabulary terms, playing vocabulary games (Fiddle Strips!), and using research for to mini-books, fact files, and posters.
I have set up the activities into 5 science stations, but they can also be implemented in whole groups or small groups without stations.
A bonus narrative writing prompt and writing pages are also included. You will also find a bonus Seasons Mini-Book and a bonus Phases of the Moon Mini-Book for research writing fun!
These activities are interactive and will keep students engaged throughout your Earth’s Place in the Universe unit.
