My unit plan is designed for students in the fifth grade. The goal of the unit is for students to understand that they are part of the universe and that within that universe there are stars (including the sun), planets, and constellations. By the end of the unit, students will understand that stars are much larger than they appear from earth. They will not only understand this overarching standard, but they will learn about other planets, types of stars, and constellations.Unit is integrated with social studies, language arts, and math.
