Product Description

The stories backdrop is a solar eclipses. Students learn about many aspects of the Sun through this piece of complex text (550L, %00+ words). A great piece for a close read during the ELA block to integrate reading and science.

Supports standards:

SC.3.E.5.1 Explain that stars can be different; some are smaller, some are larger, and some appear brighter than others; all except the Sun are so far away that they look like points of light.

SC.3.E.5.2 Identify the Sun as a star that emits energy; some of it in the form of light.

SC.3.E.5.3 Recognize that the Sun appears large and bright because it is the closest star to Earth.

Readability: 

All of our text is checked with multiple metrics to assure it is at an appropriate complexity for the student. By using multiple metrics, our experienced and knowledge staff are better able to determine an appropriate grade level rating. In most cases (we are still working on updating all text), you will see our text marked as Approaching, On-Grade, or Advanced per a specific grade.  

We are also careful to create text with an appropriate length using a well-established norm (Grade Level x 100 + 100/300 words).  We do this so our text to be used not just in the science classroom to support content, but also to be used in a reading classroom to support the development of strong readers. All of our text comes with at least 5 ELA-style questions for this purpose. 

About Us:

Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers. All have been (most still are) traditional classroom teachers with an average of 20 years of experience. We started our work because of a local need, but quickly realized the need for high quality, inexpensive resources was great. In response, we continue to produce science readers with multiple reading levels (compatible with CCSS text-complexity requirements), lesson plans, and even assessments to make the lives of teachers easier and more productive.
