Welcome to Shuttle One! I hope you’re ready to pin on your badge and take your seat in the Captain’s chair as you and your students explore the solar system.
This unit is designed with the intention of inspiring students to get excited about learning about the solar system. Each day students will undertake a reader’s theatre ‘mission’ to learn about a specific planet, and complete a related note in their notebook. Each mission comes with a lesson guide and at least one recommended video incase you would like an additional resource to show students. There is also a selection of supplemental resources you can use at your discretion. These resources include writing activities, bookmarks, extra foldable notes, and more.
