All About Space will help your preschool or kindergarten students learn, understand, and practice using the science terms used when talking about space. It also will provide you with resources to make your unit come to life. By integrating science and nonfiction into your language lessons, you not only create an enthusiasm in your students, but you can create the “hook” you need to engage even the most reluctant learners.
This packet includes many guided reading resources including: student readers, magazines, projectable books, emergent readers, and MORE! The activities are differentiated so that all of your learners can enjoy learning about Space throughout your unit of study. It also includes: student vocabulary books, center activities, real life pictures, recording pages, fully written out 5-E lesson plans, science experiments and activities and more!
Students will learn and use these vocabulary words:
Each word has a vocabulary card (with a real life picture). My students love being able to make real life connections from looking at the high quality photographs.
