It is my hope that they will help your students become
more familiar with identifying facts about each of the planets in our
These task cards could easily be used in combination with
your textbook or other resource as a guide for students to look up
and learn information. On the other hand, the task cards could be
used as a fact review after students have learned about each of the planets.
Note: I have included one card about Pluto. It seems to depend on the day whether Pluto is considered a planet, dwarf planet, or nothing at all. For this reason, I have carefully included it so that you can use it if you wish. There is also one card about the sun and its role in the solar system.
Please note that there is a color and black and white version of the entire set. When printing, you can select the pages you’d like to print in order to print one set. Another tip to save paper would be to print this set two-to-a-page. This would allow four cards on each page comfortably.
Keep in mind that these study cards were created as a part of a space unit bundle. If you feel that you will benefit from all the assessment related items, I have a "Solar System Assessment Pack". If you would like all of my Solar System unit materials, I have "Solar System Unit Bundle" which includes a test, study guide, reading passages, task cards and many other space related resources available at my TPT store. This can save you MONEY :)
