In this lesson, the students are challenged to read a short passage about the Solar System and use that passage to create a diagram. This file comes with a warm up sheet, asking the students to use a diagram to retrieve information about the Big Bang, a reading passage, a diagram design sheet, and accompanying homework.
In this lesson, the students will be given a set of facts that need to be defended using evidence from the short passage. Then, the students must create a diagram using the evidence they collected.
This lesson works as a great introduction to the following concepts:
- Creating diagrams using textual information
- Supporting claims using evidence (Common Core Skill)
- Textual Analysis
- The shape of the Solar System
