    I recently wrapped up a unit on the solar system with my third grade class. This is one of the activites they really enjoyed. We read the book, Postcards from Outerspace, a very kid-friendly informational book about the planets. Afterwrds, on large blank index cards, they were asked to choose a planet and write a postcard to a friend or family member giving them as much information about that planet as possible. They were to make an illustration of the planet on the front of the postcard. This is also a great way to tie in proper addressing skills. I even found alien stamp stickers at a local teacher's store. Good Luck!!!!
