  1. Unit Themes

    • The bodies in our solar system include: the sun, inner planets, outer planets, moons, asteroids, and comets

    • The objects in the sky move in regular and predictable patterns

    • Observations of these predictable patterns can be recorded and reported using charts and graphs

    • This data can be used to reconstruct the past, recognize the present and predict the future




  1. Focus/Motivation

  • Big Book-frontloading vocabulary and key understandings

  • Inquiry Charts, Observation charts, Exploration reports-develops skills used in inquiry such as observation, asking questions, selecting and using appropriate tools, measuring, describing in pictures and words and using charts and graphs to display data.

  • Learning Log-sets up their own guided science notebook

  • Picture File Cards- non linguistic representation of key vocabulary and concepts

  • Cognitive Content Dictionary- key conceptual vocabulary study based on inquiry

  • Scientist Awards- concrete recognition of scientific behavior based on intrinsic reward of increased knowledge


  1. Closure


  • Process charts

  • Individual tasks

  • Learning logs

  • Parent letter

  • Action plan
