Engage your students with their own Planet Packets for your solar system unit! Key facts about each of the eight planets is included (size, year of planet, temperatures, moons, colors and distinctive features) with colorful pictures of each planet. Blank spaces in the text encourage students to use context clues, background knowledge and prior information given to figure out what should go in the blanks as you work through the packet.
A PowerPoint presentation is included with bright pictures of each of the planets (and poor Pluto!), along with the famous Pale Blue Dot photo from Voyager I, and fun clip art pictures to engage students as you work through the Planet Packet.
A PDF of the PowerPoint is also included for printing classroom pictures to hang up of the planets.
