This is a two-page printable worksheet. One page is informational text about the life cycle of stars; how they are formed, how they mature, and what happens when they burn out. The second page is a crossword covering fourteen key terms from the text and a small picture to color.
Example clues are:
Clue: A universal force that attracts objects to each other.
Clue: The star closest to Earth.
Clue: What stars are mostly made of.
This is great way to introduce kids to the topic or to recap after studying stars.
