8th GRADE SCIENCE UNIT ON THE SOLAR SYSTEM

Welcome to my 8th grade science unit on the Solar System
Please feel free to duplicate or modify any of these materials to suit your instructional needs.

This 8th grade science unit on the Solar System was created using TrackStar. I use this with my 8th grade special needs class. My students are academically capable but are unmotivated. This method of learning has been very successful; they all complete 100% of the work.

My primary goal is to get them to read the material. They are very resistant to reading the textbook but they will read a web page. I give them a worksheet to fill out; all the answers are on the web pages. The questions are simple and follow the reading. Again my goal is to have read the material.

Teaching Method This is how I present each section. Day 1 go to track and take two column notes. Day 2 fill in work sheet using notes and track if necessary. Day 3 review the work sheet using track. Day 4 go to track and take quiz.
