This is a very comprehensive resource to be used as part of a 1st or 2nd grade unit on Space and the Solar System. This is a tic-tac-toe menu covering nine possible learning centres/activities/class investigations about space concepts. Teachers can have students select the activities to complete based on interest, or a class can work through each activity as an entire unit of study.
Examples of activities:
Why we have day and night
Life Cycle of a Star
A 2D model of the solar system
Facts about planets
and many more
The tic-tac-toe concept is created to motivate students to chose activities related to their interests while still covering required content/concepts
Key resource for students to explore different concepts about Space in an engaging and motivating way. Excellent resource to compliment or update any Science unit at the early elementary level. The resource also contains images of student work, finished products, and the system used to monitor which activities have been completed by which students. Buyers won't be disappointed!
