Your students will learn about the Sun and the stars, as well as brief tour around the rest of the solar system. This is a complete unit--with both print and digital options-- for teaching about the sun and the stars, including an informational text. The unit includes teaching notes, pieces for the lapbook, a study guide, unit test, and a 94-slide presentation! You can use the printable versions, go completely paperless, or use a combination of both!
The Sun and The Stars includes a 10-page print version of the informational text about the stars, the sun, the effects of the sun's energy, the planets, asteroids, comets, and more. This is a great way to practice close reading in the content areas. The informational text can supplement or replace your science textbook. It also includes a digital version of the student text with the reading questions that the students can complete online.
As your students read and learn about the sun and the stars, this The Sun and the Stars Unit gives your students a way to show and practice what they have learned. They can complete 12 different printable, foldable pieces to make a lapbook about the sun, the stars, the planets, and other objects in our solar system. These pieces are great for formative assessment as you work through the unit. Adaptations of the lapbook activities are also included in the student digital materials to use with your distance learning, or if you don't want to print.
The unit includes suggested teaching notes to use as you go through the unit and the Google Slides presentation as you teach the lessons. Of course, you are always free to put your own spin on the unit! The Slides presentation doesn't have anything fancy to distract from the content. It just has great pictures that go along with the content in the text.
The informational text is perfect for meeting your Common Core Reading Standards!! I wrote this Sun and the Stars Unit because I couldn't find anything appropriate for my third-graders! I wanted something that incorporated information that wasn't too simple. I wanted to be able to meet the new demands of the Common Core for informational text. This text will provide your students with a rigorous text, but it's written in a way that will allow your third, fourth, and fifth grade students to be successful in reading and comprehending the information.
