You will have so much fun teaching about the planets with this unit! Included is a 24 page mini book with the most important facts about our 8 planets...and even an added page about Pluto and why it isn't considered a planet anymore. To accompany the mini book is a planet flip book where students can illustrate each planet and write important facts they learned to show their comprehension. There is a flip book for the inner planets, and a flip book for the outer planets. To further show comprehension is a matching game that can be used as a center or extra practice for early finishers where students must match the planets to their provided fact.
Finally, it is so important to incorporate writing into science, and included in this unit is the option for an opinion, narrative, and informative writing! Each type of writing has an explanation of what students should write about, a graphic organizer, and different space themed paper options for students to put their final draft on!
My students loved having their own mini book to take home about this extremely engaging topic, and I know your students will love it to!
