Product Description

This Solar System research unit is perfect for planet reports! It is great for students who are learning how to use informational text and studying the solar system. Students can conduct traditional book and/or internet research.

Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. They will also learn how to find credible sources on the internet. Then, students will be assigned a planet (and optionally, a partner or group to work with). Students will have a Solar System Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about the solar system and their assigned planet. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!

Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a report/presentation and a paper mache planet. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the "Planet Fair" where your students can show off their cool paper mache planets!

You can also get this unit in the Science Research Unit Bundle! You will save 20% when you buy all of the units together!
