FREEBEIE Day #6 Wow Facts about Stars

We were beginning a unit on space last week when we read a book called The Night Sky and my students became very interested in constellations.  We explored to learn a little more and they drew their own constellations on black paper with a piece of chalk.   we extended this activity into the next day and wrote about what it looked like in our minds and also told the reader a little more about it.  (It was shared in an earlier blog).  This week we wrote WOW facts that we learned about stars during our research.  The students then used their graphic organizer and picked 3 WOW facts they learned and wanted to write about.  Here are a few of their papers...

The 3 WOW facts on this paper are:
The sun is a star.  Stars blow up.  Some of the stars are little.

The 3 WOW facts on this paper are:
The sun is a star.  Some is shining.  Some blow up.

The 3 WOW facts on this paper are:
Stars are made from gas and dust.  There can be baby stars and big.  Some can blow.

  1. Hi, Your graphic organizer for the star facts will not download. Would you mind sending it to me? We are finishing up our unit on objects in the sky and I would love to use this as a formative assessment about the stars. Thanks for sharing, Barbara meadowt@msn.com
