- Teaching 5th grade SCIENCE has been my passion for the past 8 years. These fun activities and vocabulary tools will engage your students as they learn valuable science content to help them prepare for state testing. There are also some activities typically taught in 3rd and 4th grade (such as Moon P$42.75$95.00Save $52.25
This foldable activity can be used as part of an interactive notebook or as a stand alone activity.
Vocabulary words include: universe, galaxy, solar system, sun, planet, moon, asteroid, comet, dwarf planet
I designed this activity because I wanted my students to be able to differentiate between these important key vocabulary words, while also VISUALIZING that the solar system is part of a galaxy and the galaxies are part of the universe. This is intended to support your teaching of these vocabulary words.
Copy one set per student.
This is a foldable activity intended to reinforce space science vocabulary, while demonstrating the main components of the universe.
*Students will need access to pictures of spiral, elliptical, and irregular galaxies to draw/sketch examples.
*After creating the foldable, students will need to handwrite the vocabulary word “universe” as well as the definition onto the outside (the definition is included in the directions).
*It is best used when glued into a student composition book as part of an interactive notebook.
*Some students may need assistance cutting and folding. The actual size of the finished foldable activity is 4.25 x 4.25 inches.
*The information in the foldable is as detailed as possible for this activity, but not comprehensive.
*I like to let students highlight and add color to their foldable when finished.
*There is also a blank template option.
