This is a bundle of my individual planet worksheets. There is an informational text (400-500 words long) for each planet along with a crossword covering vocabulary and key terms which are highlighted in bold within the text.
Rather than repeat dull facts and figures for each planet I wrote these texts to be interesting and therefore focus on different topics for each planet. For example, Venus' story explores why Venus and Earth, which began their lives as very similar places, are now drastically different. The text for Uranus tells the story of its discovery by an unlikely brother-and-sister team of amateur astronomers who became world famous. And Saturn's text describes the Voyager probes and their long journeys out into the universe.
I've also included a one-page crossword covering the planets in general. The whole is bundle is 26 pages including answer keys.
I have more crosswords on a variety of topics at my store, Curious Crosswords. You can also find some fun, free crosswords and printables on my blog, CuriousCrosswords.com.
I hope you enjoy using my puzzles as much as I enjoy creating them!
