Literature & Math: Stories about the Solar System

Through these literature-based enrichment activities, students will practice math skills as they learn about the solar system. After reading "A Pizza the Size of the Sun" by Jack Prelutsky, students will create a pizza and compute what fractional part (or percentage) is covered with each topping. They will also discover the formula for the area of a circle. After reading Eclipse: Darkness in Daytime by Franklyn Branley, students will discuss, model, and provide explanations for solar eclipses.
