Product Description
These differentiated solar system reading passages are a must have for working on reading informational text with your students! They cover everything students need to know about the planets, the sun, and the moon! The Solar System Cooperative Learning project is similar to literature circles in that each student has a "job" or role they have to complete for their planet. You will have your students so engaged in reading and learning about our Solar System that they will not even realize how much hard work their brains are doing!

Check out the links to each of the 4 individual products below to get a clear preview of each ($26.25 value)!
