I created this mini book today after I got to thinking how soon our Space and Planets unit is coming. One more week of Dr. Seuss and then we have a two week study of space and the planets. We purchased a ton of read aloud books for our unit last year, but don't really have any books that the whole class can do as a shared read or for a guided reading group.
There are 9 planets.
The 9 planets orbit the sun.
The sun is the center
Mercury is closest to the sun.
Venus is the hottest planet.
Earth is the only planet with animals.
Mars is called the red planet.
Jupiter has a giant red spot. It is a storm.
Saturn's rings are made of rock and ice.
Uranus spins around on its side.
Neptune is the 8th planet from the sun.
Pluto is a dwarf planet.
Astronomers use a telescope to study the stars and planets.
A constellation is a group of stars that make a shape.
An astronaut wears a special suit to keep him safe in space.
If you already have my Space and Planets Cut Apart sentences, this is a great book to go along with it!
You can find this mini-book HERE at my TPT store.
