Space: Great Trade Books

Our unit on space is coming up and I started thinking about my favorite books to help teach my class about our solar system!  Here’s my favorite read alouds.  They are great for discussion starters, clarifying concepts, clearing up misconceptions, and introducing new material.



  1. Super list! I really like Gail Gibbons.

  2. I just found your blog, and I’m your newest follower. I also followed you on TpT. I teach second grade science and math. My school has had very low science TAKS (and now STAAR) scores because nobody taught science. They concentrated on math and reading. Then the 5th grade teacher busts her butt trying to get the kids up to speed and it just doesn’t work. Now, I am in 2nd grade (having moved from 5th grade math) and I LOVE teaching Science. The kids love it as well. Keep up the good work. Your blog will be much visited.

    P.S. Love the Weekly 5
