Product Description
These task cards were created for an introductory universe unit for a 6th grade classroom but works with any 5th – 7th graders. Focuses are vocabulary, scaling-size of the universe, Milky Way galaxy, constellations and stars (including Alpha Centauri and Polaris), light years, speed of light, ancient uses of constellations, movement of stars, and comparing sizes. Details about the solar system is another set. This set is wonderful for test review. I use these for a cooperative learning activity, science centers, whole class, individual, or partner work. I spiral review the questions throughout the year to prepare for year-end testing. An answer key and student work space are provided. Consider copying the task cards onto cardstock and laminating them for use in years to come. If you don’t want to copy them, just display them on your projector and solve them as a whole class. Sometimes I make one set and spread the cards throughout the classroom. Students can start at any number. Enjoy!
