This is a brochure template created for any planet (including Pluto!). This two-sided, three panel wide brochure is a great research material for teaching about the planets. It is easily printed back-to-back in black and white so students can color it and make it their own piece of art while including important information about their planet.
The brochure includes the following information to be researched:
-basic planet information
-colored image of the planet
-creative thinking questions
-blank diagram of the solar system to be labeled
-interesting facts about the planet
I have also included basic directions, three suggested websites students can use to research their planet, and a rubric that I use with my science students (that you could exclude if it didn't fit your needs).
This is a timeless assignment that can be used each year. I always assign students their planet and ensure that all planets are being researched so students can share their findings once they have completed their brochure. Students love putting their creative energy into this assignment and turn in colorful, eye-catching brochures. I hope you and your students enjoy this as much as we do!
