What is an Essential?
Essentials are short activities linked to basic reading, writing or language skills. In these activities, students practice these basic skills in real world situations that feature topics they know and love. We include final questions that help students develop critical thinking skills.
Each Essential also includes a complete teacher guide, answer key and rubric.
In Cosmic Meanings, students use scientific facts and vocabulary about Mars and the Solar System to practice determining the meanings of words and phrases from context clues and from reference materials.
