Out in Space! G?

INFO: Berger, Melvin. Out in Space! G?. 1995.

DESC: This early-level non-fiction is a great and non-intimidating general overview of the many elements comprising “space.” It introduces kiddos to rockets, the planets of our solar system, and even gives a short glimpse beyond the galaxy! Some students may freak out about the specialized vocabulary – just focus on “telling” names and new words (like “andromeda” or “nebula”) and challenge the students to take on the rest. Once they get the planet names down, students will find this a rewarding read – and one that they’re very proud of.
