Here are some wonderful products that will make your unit on the solar system more interesting and fun for you and your class.
A WebQuest that will have your students using the internet as they read for information and learn about outer space and the variety of natural objects out there.
A set of Task Cards that review and reinforce the material they have learned on their internet quest.
A Solar System Bingo game that you can play with the whole class for review or allow small groups to "play" their way to mastery of the material.
This is a bundle of three products that are offered separately in my store. Buying this way will save you money.
