Third through fifth graders explore writing paragraphs. Each person chooses a planet. Everyone arranges themselves physically to represent the solar system. This helps learners make connections between the order of the planets and the order of words in a sentence. Next, they read aloud a part of speech term and example given on a card, then arrange themselves in order to form a complete sentence. They finish by writing a paragraph including a "clincher" closing sentence.
