Use this Domino Puzzle to help students review common Astronomy terms.

I’ve included two different sizes of the same puzzle. The normal size requires 2 pieces of paper per puzzle and can be solved on the student’s desk or on a table. The larger size requires 8 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve!

Cut out the 24 game pieces. Students will begin with the domino piece labeled with “Start” and find the piece that has the definition to match with each term until the “Finish” piece is used. All pieces are used and the solution is included (note the shape will change depending on the student, but the order will always be the same).

The terms defined in this puzzle are:
Constellation, equinox, solstice, craters, waning moon, waxing moon, solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, solar flare, sunspot, revolution, rotation, geocentric model, heliocentric model, astronomical unit,. light year, comet, asteroid, universe, stars, Polaris, Big Bang Theory and telescope.
