Planet Project Update

Hello Families!

Today was research day for our planet project and the students had a little over an hour to research information about their assigned planet. Many scholars were able to find plenty of information and fill up the research sheet, however there are also many scholars that could benefit from some additional help. We will be using this information to write an essay later this week, so it is important that they have enough information written on their research sheet. We used these websites: National Geographic and Nasa.

If you are able, help your student to peruse these sites for details about their assigned planet and fill in the information on their research sheet.

Thank you so much for your support! Please feel free to reach out with any questions
