There are 3 main activities:

Solar System Vocabulary:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Informational Articles:
Have students read the informational articles all about the Solar System with comprehension questions and scenes for students to connect and color. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups or even as a center or learning station activity.

Student Activities:
Have students complete the Solar System Flip-Up booklet and build it page by page. The Flip-Up is built so the planets go in order of their relation to the Sun. Each page of the Flip-Up booklet includes a graphic organizer that has students answer questions about that specific planet such as:
*How long does it take to turn on its axis?
*How long does it take to orbit the Sun?
*Where is it in relation to the Sun?
*Describe what it looks like?
Tell one interesting fact
And more!

All the answers for each planet are found in the related articles. I usually have them do one page at each center or learning station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-Up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.

There’s also a Which Planet is it? Activity, Solar System Quiz, and Venn Diagrams to compare the planets.

Plus, there are 8 colorful Planet Posters with lots of diagrams, additional info, and facts about each planet to help students visualize the planets and/or to use as part of a learning station, research project, or for an awesome bulletin board display.
