PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Space Differentiated Reading Passages: planets, revolution and rotation, asteroids and comets, meteoroids, meteors, meteorites, moon phases, stars, constellations, galaxies
SPACE BUNDLE

Each of the 8 files include one passage written on three levels. Passages are marked H, M, L (high, medium, low) in small print on the bottom of the page.
As all students are tested on the same benchmarks, the passages are differentiated -not the assessment.

Passages are written in full page format with large font for annotating text in centers or guided reading.
If you prefer to use the passages in the interactive science notebooks, a half page format is also included.

GO GREEN! Place passages in page protectors for text marking with dry erase markers in centers.

Answer key is included.

*identify the position and sequential order of planets.
*identify major common characteristics of all planets (tilt on an axis,
revolving/orbiting around a star, rotation)
*Earth rotates on its axis one time every 24 hours
*Earth revolves (orbits) around the sun in one year
*distinguish between asteroids and comet
*the moon does not produce its own light; it reflects light from the sun
*the moon revolves around (orbits) Earth in about 28 days as Earth revolves around (orbits) the sun
*sequence moon patterns
*the moon’s physical shape does not actually change
*Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it is moves across the sky in the day or night sky
*the sun as a star in our solar system that emits its own energy (light and heat).
*compare the size of the sun to that of the other stars.
*the sun is a medium-size star, but it appears to be the largest, brightest star in the sky because it is closest to Earth
*stars can be different size, brightness, and color
*the star patterns (constellations) in the sky do not move although they appear to shift across the sky nightly due to Earth’s rotation.
*different star patterns are high in the night sky in some seasons but dip below the horizon in other seasons.
*Earth moves, but the sun and other stars remain fixed in the sky (do not move).
*Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the sun/stars to appear as though they are moving across the sky
*describe the composition of a galaxy (gas, dust, and many stars, including any objects orbiting the stars)
*identify our home galaxy as the Milky Way
