Product Description
Students wonder why Pluto isn't classified as a Planet any more. Dr. Robert Hurt explains why in an animated video clip from the Spitzer Science Center. I created a graphic organizer that assists students in planning a letter to an editor of a science magazine that expresses their opinion about Pluto after watching the video clip on the Internet.
Teachers wonder how to incorporate science into reading or writing groups. After a small group lesson on fact and opinion, students practice how to express their opinions backed up with facts. I created this lesson for a multi-grade 4/5 classroom science unit on the Planets.
