Solar System Unit

Third grade students came in with their classes the week of May 5th for a Solar System unit. There were four stations. At the first station, students used books to fill in a chart of planet sizes. They then used this information to create a planet graph. At the second station, students completed a diagram of the sun and used books to find the answers to questions about the sun. At the third station they completed a sheet about one specific planet. They then used this sheet to create a planet travel brochure later in the computer lab. The fourth station consisted of a moon booklet where students had to use their imagination and write a letter to Earth from the Moon. They also had to write about playing their favorite sport on the Moon. This unit was a lot of fun and the kids did a wonderful job!
