Product Description
A great resource to combine Music, Science, Literacy, and Art!!

At my school, our classes rotate on Friday's for each 9 week grading period. I had to create an extra unit for this Friday rotation and I decided to use Gustav Holst's "The Planet." This can also be used as a regular unit, however. Each class, I prepare a Blendspace of pictures, facts, and finally the actual song for each planet.

Each planet has a:
KWL Chart (Know, Want to Know, Learned)
"Brainstorming" Page (Used to generate ideas for drawings)
"Art Gallery" (Where students will draw a picture to the music...Standard 8 of Music Education)
Literary Response (Forces students to think about the characteristics of the music and how it matches each planet's god.)
