Fact Fans give students an interesting and attractive way to publish their work, share their learning.... even study for a quiz!
Fact Fans are ideal for practicing note-taking, introducing research, for center work, fast finishers, independent projects, and as a supplement to your unit on Space.
With Planet Fact Fans, students research the planets, the sun, and the moon, and record the information on their Note-Taking Sheet.
Then, students edit their work, and publish their information on these fun FACT FANS!
They color the planets and hole-punch the fans 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.
Bonus activity: Students use completed Fact Fans to order planets' distance from the sun.
For each planet, students must find:
-the distance from the sun
-the length of orbit
-the history of the planet's name
-3 interesting facts
For the sun, students must also find:
-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 also 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
