The Moon Book {A Great Science Mentor Text with Lesson Activities}

Hi, Friends!

I wanted to share a great science text with you and some activities to go with it. As we prepare for our state testing in a couple weeks, I have been reviewing with my students. One of the topics that we covered earlier in the year was the moon. There is a great book by Gail Gibbons that is perfect for reviewing.

The first thing I did was have the students paste in some graphic organizers. Then, I started reading the book aloud. I stopped at different points so that the students could fill in their graphic organizers. 

We did a Venn Diagram, a cloze activity, and labeled features of the moon. Next up, we will draw the phases of the moon!

I have linked up with Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday! This is a fabulous Science Mentor Text that can be used to integrate Science into Language Arts. Check out all of her ideas and other great books!

This Moon Product is available in an AWESOME science bundle on Educents right now!
Some friends and I have teamed up with Educents for an amazing bundle of instant downloads for you!

You could buy this by itself, but, even better, you can get it as part of this Educents bundle along with so many excellent resources that I'm also using!  For a limited time it is $10.99 from Educents which is about 65% off!  It also includes these other great products so there is sure to things you love!  

And if you have never purchased from Educents before.. they always have a great deal for your first purchase.  Click HERE if you are a first time purchaser to take advantage of a special offer just for you!   

You can also take peek at some of the other products included in the bundle at any of the links below!  Just click the link!

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Wednesday!  :)
