2 StartStop 2Stop 3Stop 4Stop 5Stop 6Stop 1Next Back Stop 1: Introduction You have been hired by a multimillion dollar childrens book publishing company. They have read your previous childrens books and love your style. Your objective is to create a book geared towards 3rd graders that can be fiction, but needs to have facts about the eight planets. The publishers want the story line to be creative to entice the readers to enjoy the book as well as learn details about the solar system. Your mission, if you chose to accept it will be to take the readers on a tour so they may be able to investigate the organization of the solar system and the relationships among the various bodies that comprise it. Some key concepts within the book should include the sun, our moon, Earth, and the other seen planets and their moons.

Use the chart on the following page to help you organize your notes as you find more information on the worldwide web. 1.Visit the following websites to fill in the data on the chart: 1.http://www.proteacher.com/cgi- bin/outsidesite.cgi?id=23&external=http://www.nineplanets.org/&original=http://www.proteacher.com/ shtml&title=The%20Nine%20Planetshttp://www.proteacher.com/cgi- bin/outsidesite.cgi?id=23&external=http://www.nineplanets.org/&original=http://www.proteacher.com/ shtml&title=The%20Nine%20Planets 2.www.brainpop.comwww.brainpop.com 1.Watch the video clips on each individual planet and on the asteroid belt. This will give you a lot of interesting facts and it will tell you about the moons for each planet. 3.http://www.scholastic.com/magicschoolbus/tour/tour.htm?spacehttp://www.scholastic.com/magicschoolbus/tour/tour.htm?space 4.http://www.windows.ucar.edu/tour/link=/our_solar_system/solar_system.htmlhttp://www.windows.ucar.edu/tour/link=/our_solar_system/solar_system.html 2.Once you have filled in the chart with all the information gathered you may now organize yourself to create your childrens book. First you need to think of a theme. 3.Now that you have a theme write the introduction page. 4.Write your second page which should include visiting the first planet which is Mercury. Be sure to give all the data you had recorded from your research. 5.Write your third page on the second planet, Venus. Be sure to give all the data you had recorded from your research. 6.Continue to write about the adventures through outer space using one page per planet. Do not forget to add the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. This should also get its own page. 7.Now that you have written about your journey through all eight planets, Pluto, and the asteroid belt you can wrap up your adventures on your last page. 8.Create a glossary for young children to use to help them with tough words. 9.Edit your rough draft. 10.Write your final copy including colored illustrations. 11.Decorate your front and back cover, just as you would see on a picture book.

Once the publisher (teacher) has looked over the childrens books then they will decide if the book is ready to go on the shelves for young children to enjoy. If the book is free of errors then the books will go to the library of the neighboring elementary school for the young children to enjoy.
