In this unit study we will take an in depth look at all eight of the planets in our solar system. Each class we will research a new planet and record our findings in our Planet Tab Book. This course is designed for 2nd and 3rd grade students who would like to dig deeper into learning about our solar system. Each class session, we will read a close reading passage together on the planet of the day. We will then discuss what was read and use it to fill in our planet's finding for our...
The Planets Unit Study series will cover the following over the 9 weeks: Week 1: The sun, rocky planets, and Mercury Week 2: Venus Week 3: Earth Week 4: Mars Week 5: Gas giants and Jupiter Week 6: Saturn Week 7: Uranus Week 8: Neptune and Solar System labeling Week 9: completion of art project using oil pastels
I have taught elementary education for 16 years in the public school setting for grades 1-3. I have a strong background in reading and love using reading to teach across other content areas. It is my goal and desire to show every child that reading can be fun and that it can cover a variety of interests and that we can learn many things while reading.
The students are asked to have the book printed and stapled together for their first live class (I will share the pages they will need the Sunday prior to their class). They will also need: a journal, a pencil, colors (optional), glue (to glue books into journal), stapler (to staple books together), and internet access to research kid-friendly sites the teacher lists each week. For the last session - class #9, the students will need a set of oil pastels (crayons will work if you do not have oil pastels) and an 11''X13'' sheet of black construction paper.
The student will be conducting research through kid-friendly online sources to complete a book over each of the eight planets. At the end of the unit the student will complete an art project in which they draw each of the eight planets on black construction paper to scale using oil pastels.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents may need to help assemble the book for students that have never created a Tab-It book before. Even though it will be modeled the first class, they may benefit from a little extra support when putting it together.
