The Sun and The Stars
includes a 10-page 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.
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 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.
The unit includes suggested teaching notes to use as you go through the unit and the PowerPoint. Of course, you are always free to put your own spin on the unit! The PowerPoint 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.
