Product Description
Astronomy/Space Unit (4 Weeks)
Appropriate for grades 5-7 & Homeschool


PURPOSE:
This 4 week unit plan will give you a great framework for a unit in discovering space. This unit deals with how gravity affects out planets and how our solar system works. We debunk a few myths about the seasons, phases of the moon, distance between and size of planets, and the levels of our atmosphere. This unit plan offers multiple lessons involving computer access and an optional iPad activity. Because space is highly foreign to students as humans looking up from the earth, technology is the easiest way to access this information.

Inside this zip file you will find a Read Me.pdf that will guide you through the 4 weeks of the unit. See the “What’s included” section below for the details. This is an all-inclusive unit plan! Although this was designed and implemented in a sixth grade classroom, it can be easily modified to fit a fifth grade or seventh grade classroom as well. Look no further to get your students engaged in this interesting and strange topic of space and our solar system.
