Learning with Chapter Slices: Asteroids, Meteors & Comets

Did you know that we have chapter slices of all our full resources? These are great if you want just one chapter from a complete book. Available in easy-to-use .PDF eBook format that can be downloaded instantly whenever you need it. Our chapter slice format follows our established teaching pedagogy, but more streamlined:

  • A teacher section highlighting the resource, focusing on the specific chapter.
  • The chapter content with before you read, reading passage, after you read activities, and answer key.
  • Bonus extension activities from the full resource, with crossword, word search, comprehension quiz, and mini posters.
  • Choose from over 1200 chapters in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Environmental Studies, and Spanish. These chapter slices are ideal for 2-to-5-day lessons, extension activities, introduction to a new topic, specific curriculum content, and are great for substitute teachers.

    Check out our selection of Chapter Slices with a look at our chapter “Asteroids, Meteors and Comets” from our Solar System full resource.
