Get your students reading and researching as they learn about the planets! This research unit contains three pages in all -- a cover page, a picture page, and an information page about the planet.
My students use internet search skills (we have notebook computers) to gain their information about each planet. You may use informational books as well. You have the option of assigning students to research each of the planets individually, or dividing them up among groups. These pages lead to lively discussions because information about the planets varies somewhat. Newer publications and websites contain more up to date information than older ones do. It is an opportunity to show students how new discoveries in Science require changes in textbooks, websites, and articles.
