PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a two-page, printable reading activity about the planet Uranus. The first page is a short (approximately 450-word) informational text about Uranus. The second page is a crossword covering content and vocabulary which is highlighted in bold within the text.
The focus of the text is the planet's discovery. It's a pretty amazing story about a brother and sister team of hobbyist astronomers who become international celebrities overnight after identifying the planet. Caroline Herschel in particular is an inspiring figure. She was truly a pioneer for women in science.
