Providing a balanced overview of our solar system, this original Spanish book – which comes with comprehension worksheets and can also double as a slideshow – covers the planets, the Sun, asteroids, comets, and other vital aspects of our solar system. For more information, see "key vocabulary" below.
"The Solar System" is perfect for any elementary or middle-school science class, as well as older Spanish-speaking SIFE, immigrants, or ELL students at the high-school level who still struggle with literacy (for whom this book was originally designed).
The accompanying Spanish version also makes this book ideal for Spanish and bilingual literacy.
This book is great for whole-class read aloud, group reading, or individual reading. It also comes complete with comprehension worksheets for students to complete while reading.
The book is unique in that it features a beautiful array of high-resolution, full-page, real-life images, as well as pages with no more than 4-5 sentences each. These features specifically accommodate older learners students who would otherwise be overwhelmed with text-heavy pages found in books meant for students their age, yet disenchanted with "younger" illustrations found in books written at their reading levels.
The book contains several crucial elements of print, such as:
2) The Sun
7) The Asteroid Belt
