Earth is a pretty neat-o place. Not only is it our home and home to millions of species of animals and plants, but Earth also has so many cool things to learn about! Pair an activity with your science class to find new and interesting facts at your students’ level. Students can research using classroom materials, the internet, books at the library, or from an in-class lesson associated with your current science or social studies unit!
Short facts can be written in the title boxes, but for facts in complete sentences, make sure to use the description box option. Have students depict facts literally, or give them some freedom to use their creativity to show a fact abstractly or figuratively. Have FUN!
The example shows a Frayer Model layout that can only have exactly four facts. The traditional and spider map layouts are also great choices for facts, especially if you want to have another number of facts.
