Our Solar System: A Look into Space! is a power point presentation filled with facts about the sun and the planets of our solar system.
The power point is a fill in the blank format. Pictures of planets add color and interest to the presentation. Vocabulary is emphasized through repetition and the fill in the blank format. Planet facts such as diameter and distance from the sun are included along with high interest facts including strongest storms, planet colors, and origin of the planet name.
My fifth graders love this format. It is highly engaging and can be used to introduce or to review a solar system unit.
After watching the presentation whole class, I loaded it to Google Classroom for students to view independently and to fill in a graphic organizer with facts about each planet.
