My name is Kari Shutts, I am a teacher, mother and wife. I have been teaching for 10 years, have been married for 8, and a mother for almost 6. I have three beautiful children, two boys and a baby girl and well as my two dogs. I am a teacher in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. I enjoy the adventures that come from all parts of my life and look forward to sharing them with you.
Each year when it is time to begin our space unit I get so excited and can't wait to begin. This year was no different. I went out in search for new and improved ideas for teaching about the order of the planets. This year I found this amazing book for students to create in ordering the planets and recording some of the important facts we discussed in class. Students also were able to create their own mnemonic devices for the planets. Both activities were really fun.
The students really enjoyed making their own mnemonic devices. They are really allowed to be creative in their devices.
The booklet is an amazing long foldable that I found over at Lesons Plan SOS. My students loved creating the booklet and really learned the facts about the different planets.
Here are some pictures of my students booklets.
