This is a packet that I use to accompany my solar system unit! It has 5 worksheets (mercury, venus, earth, mars, and the sun) that include a short passage with questions to follow. There are 4 posters with three short facts about each planet you can use to post in your classroom, or pass out to students. Finally, there is a writing activity where students are asked to create their own planet.
