Description

Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. They will also learn how to find credible sources on the internet. Then, students will be assigned a planet (and optionally, a partner or group to work with). Students will have a Solar System Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about the solar system and their assigned planet. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!

Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a report/presentation and a paper mache planet. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the “Planet Fair” where your students can show off their cool paper mache planets!

Solar System Unit Contents:

  • Teacher Info Pages: This includes a sample unit outline, grading rubric, and lesson plans for internet research, intro lesson, research journals, and final projects.
  • Book research/ text features worksheets: Students will review other text features including: glossary, titles, headings, photos, captions, graphs/charts, and special print. They will also compare and contrast the table of contents and index.
  • Internet research worksheets: These worksheets will familiarize your students with how to find credible sources on the internet for research.
  • Planet Cards: Cards with the name and clip art of each planet. You can use these to assign students a planet to research.

There is one question on each page for the students to find the answer to. 19 pre-written pages are included, plus 2 blank ones to add your own questions.

I am so excited for this particular research topic set. My students are ALWAYS asking if we can earn about and research the plants. This packet has everything to help get the students started with their research and work through the project. I really like the choice cards to help divide up the topics easily and the multiple print formats that are included.
