Studying the planets is a fun way to do science and work on writing reports! Many children don’t love writing reports, but these mini-reports can make it an easy, short, interesting way to get some writing done in a way that your children (hopefully!) won’t even know is often not looked on as a fun activity. (Sometimes we have to get creative to work in writing for those kiddos who don’t naturally enjoy it, right?!)
And if you have older elementary or middle school students who are working on writing longer reports or research papers, these mini-reports can be a less-intimidating way to start taking some notes and get the process started. They are also a great way for older children to help younger children do some science.
