This package includes 22 writing prompts aligned to a Earth’s Place in the Universe unit. Each writing prompt is in the form of a question relating to Earth’s position in the sky and its systems with the Sun, the Moon, and stars.
These prompts can be used in writing groups, as part of a whole group research project, and/or independently as an assessment. The prompt topics allow for easy integration of ELA and science. Prompts could be used to guide instruction and/or be used as an exit slip as a science “cool down.”
I have also included Common Core aligned 5th grade writing explanatory and opinion scoring rubrics.
These prompts are designed and aligned to meet the 5th Grade Next Generation Science Standards within your Earth’s Place in the Universe unit of study.
Please see the Preview! I also have Earth's Place in the Universe Task Cards and Earth's Place in the Universe Science Stations! All aligned to 5th Grade Next Generation Science Standards!
Thanks for viewing!
