Space/Our Planet

This unit starts with a look at space as students learn about the night sky and how to identify several constellations. Then time is spent learning about each of the planets and comparing them to each other. The focus comes back to Earth as students learn about our air and water, animals around today and those long extinct, and how our planet keeps changing quickly and over time.
