Very simple worksheet I made including the sun and the 8 planets (roughly) to scale. Pupils can label and colour in the planets and sun. Can be easily differentiated by either writing the names of the planets on the board, adding the first letter of the planet to the text boxes, leaving it as is, or just having the sun and asking pupils to draw the planets and label them. Suitable for KS3.
The entire unit focuses on the Common Core Standards and shift to getting students to use evidence from the text to answer and defend their responses. The structure of my class was a vocabulary mini-lesson, mini-lesson connected to a skill, whole class and independent reading connected to the text. LESSON PLANS ARE IN WORD (AND PDF) FORMAT. This perfect for teachers who like to tweak class activities to the needs of their individual classes. Please note restrictions on commercial use.
The Unit Includes:
25 Original Vocabulary Mini-lessons
24 Lessons (Questions from the chapters, Exit Ticket, Homework)
22 Mini-lessons aligned to skills from the text
4 Extension Activities (Create a Creature, Wanted Ads, Character Traits, Alternative Ending)
1 Character Study Mini-Book (9 pages) for students to track characters
A straightforward worksheet of questions with a clear example for students to refer to at the top. The differentiated version just has less questions and space to be completed on the sheet if preferred. Hopefully you will find it useful, if so please leave a comment.
