This planet packet is a collection of sheets I have used in my classroom over the past year. Things I simply couldn't find or things that didn't quite have the right format for my needs. I especially enjoy using the What is a Planet? reading page to foster conversations about dwarf planets, stars and comets and why they are not considered planets.
I have included a difficulty level with each activity because I teach a multiple level class that can range from 4th to 8th grade depending on the month and need at my school, and I need to be ready for many different levels.

What is a planet? reading page (Medium, 2 pages)
