Product Description

This STEAM project guides students through their research of the planets, sun, and moon and displays their learning in an attractive & surprising way! Fact Fans integrate reading, writing, and science, which both saves time and engages students. This project is ideal for practicing note-taking, introducing research, for center work, fast finishers, independent projects, and as a supplement to your science unit on space and the solar system.

A list of Recommended Resources is provided to help guide teachers. Students can use the Recommended Resources to research and note-take on the provided sheets.

The process is simple!

- Students record their notes on the provided Note-taking Sheet.

-They edit their notes with the Student Editing Checklist.

- An answer key is provided so the information can be checked for accuracy before being published onto the fans.

- Students color the planets, record their information, cut out the fan, and hole-punch at the bottom.

- A metal brad through the circles completes the project.

- Also included are a Cover Page and Resources Page for students to practice citing their sources.

- When complete, students can use their completed Fact Fans to order the planets' distance from the sun.

For each planet, students must find:

- the distance from the sun

- the diameter

- the length of orbit

- the climate

- the history of the planet's name

- 3 interesting facts

For the sun, students must research:

- the length of time it takes for the sun's light to reach Earth

- the temperature of the sun's core

- the temperature of the sun's surface

For the moon, students must determine:

- how much of the moon we can see at one time, and why

- around what does the moon orbit and how long it takes

Answer keys included!
