This is a lesson about the Cassini mission to Saturn. Learners will see Saturn as part of the larger system of the Sun and its orbiting planets. A whole-class read-aloud provides students practice in listening to nonfiction text and a KWL chart supports the discussion of the text. Also included in the lesson is a structured writing activity that leads students to understand and explain their own place in the solar system. This is lesson 2 of 10 in the Mission to Saturn Educators Guide, Reading Writing Rings, for grades 1-2.
