This power point presentation can be taught through the power point or each slide may be printed and given to each student to then discuss and glue into their science notebook. 4 weeks of printouts are based on the first four planets in our solar system. Each week a new planet is discussed which include: vocabulary, compare and contrast, and writing assignments. It is a great introduction to space and helps to peek curiosity while promoting vocabulary growth as well as informational and persuasive writing. This fits for any 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade class that needs additional science work. An assessment quiz is included as well as a study guide for students. Have students work in groups with chart paper to create each planet and facts to accompany it.
