Paint Stick Solar System Project - this is such a fun way for kids to learn about our solar system and the name of the planets (homeschool, science, prek, kindergarten,first grade, second grade, third grade)
This is an excellent way for students to remember the order of the planets. This worksheet also allows students to write in the names of each planet, so teachers would easily be able to see if the material is being learned. I also like how each planet has a visual. This would help any visual learners in the classroom. - KS
This is a fun activity to use when teaching the about the solar system and the order of the planets. Students cut and paste the name of the planets into the correct blank boxes on the worksheet. If they finish early they can also color the worksheets and add comets, stars, moons, etc.!
COUNTING THE PLANETS SONG - Now your kids can learn to count and learn the names of the planets at the same time! This learning song for kids is fun to use for homeschool, in the classroom, kindergarten learning, or just as a fun sing along kids song. Created as a part of the "Lots and Lots of Roaring Rockets" DVD from Marshall Publishing at www.marshallpub.com about space, the planets and NASA.
