Stars light up the sky on a clear night. They may look the same from Earth, but they come in many sizes and colors. Readers will launch into learning about the composition and classification of stars, the "life cycle" of these nonliving luminaries, galaxies, our solar system, and more through this high-interest informational text filled with vibrant photographs. Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, a hands-on Think Like a Scientist lab activity and a Your Turn page at the end of the title support STEM Education and provide young scientists with an opportunity to apply what they've learned in the text. Helpful diagrams, including a Venn diagram of the three types of galaxies, and text features, such as a glossary and index, are also included to reinforce content-area literacy and improve close reading. This 6-Pack includes six copies of this Level V title and a lesson plan that specifically supports guided reading instruction.
