Product Description

This is a collection of pages that I use during a four-week third grade cross-curricular planet unit each year. Students apply for a space mission, create a crew patch, research a planet, write a report, and create art, math, reading, and writing projects to show what they've learned. I use these ideas in a mix of whole class lessons and learning centers.
