PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity includes a visual graphic organizer that the students use to take notes on interesting information about the planets!

Print out each of the mini posters (there are two pages for each planet) and hang them around your classroom.

Tell your students that they are going on a tour of the solar system, hand them their notes pages (designed so you could have the students tape them together into one big visual of the solar system!), and send them on their way!

Alternatively, assign a planet to groups and have THEM create a poster displaying the required information... then have the whole class do the gallery walk of all of the posters using the graphic organizer.

This could also be a great anticipation activity before your students choose a planet for their Planet Children's Book Research Project. Please also check out my Scaled Solar System Activity: Relative Distances and Sizes of the Planets as a hands-on model-building study of the solar system!

Thanks for looking!
