#### What educators are saying

This resource was extremely useful in my classroom!! Engaging, rigorous, and connected to the standards. Thank you!
I love when I can cover multiple subjects at one time. This is a great way to review both math and science.

### Description

Are your students OBSESSED with the solar system? Give them an extra challenge with this integrated science and math resource! These no prep word problems are perfect for your fast finishers. These problems will push their adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing skills to new levels, while they learn facts about our solar system.

In this blended learning resource, students read high-interest passages about each of the planets, the sun, moon, asteroid belt, and even Pluto! Using the information and numbers in the passage, they solve addition, subtraction, multiplication or division problems using large numbers (up to the hundred-millions place). Their ability to use all four operations will be put to the test!

This resource is also perfect for your science unit on the solar system! For each component of the solar system, there is a “by the numbers” fact sheet that makes a great bulletin board or research center. Students can use the passages and posters to do their own research or just for some extra high-interest reading!

Here's what's inside:

• One nonfiction reading passage for each planet, Earth’s moon, the sun, the asteroid belt and Pluto with corresponding word problems (12 passages total)
• “By the Numbers” fact sheets for each planet, Earth’s moon, the sun, the asteroid belt and Pluto
• Nonfiction reading passages without word problems
• Teaching ideas

Your students will love learning about the solar system! They will be engaged in reading about each component of the solar system, as well as challenging themselves to solve higher level word problems. All of the passages include facts about the solar system that any student would find fascinating!

Prep is quick and easy - just print and copy the passages for your students and you are all set! You can even print the fact sheets separately to make a fun and easy solar system bulletin board.

Here's what other teachers are saying...

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Heidi M. said, “Used this resource with distance learning to extend learning in science and math. Was great for engaging students in critical thinking. Would highly recommend.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Renee S. said, “Fabulous resource! We used this for our 4th grade science unit. We used the cards for stations and rotated the students through. Then, we used them in math for extra problem solving for our high math kids. :) Thank you so much! Big time saver.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christy L. said, “Great activity to include during our Space Week Room Transformation! Thank you!”
