A WordFit puzzle is a great way to introduce vocabulary for an Astronomy or Solar Eclipse unit in Earth Science. This type of puzzle is more challenging than a Word Find and will exercise students' logic skills! While a crossword puzzle GIVES the definitions, this resource makes your students put the words in alphabetical order and look up the definitions in their glossary (some will not be in their book, so it is also a good opportunity to learn how to properly use the internet to find the proper definitions). Students will reinforce their scientific knowledge and review spelling while having fun doing a puzzle.
The vocabulary focuses on the the science of a Solar Eclipse as well as terms related to the experience!

Vocabulary Words: sky, sun, moon, tilt, edge, dark, earth, orbit, solar, umbra, corona, Kepler, perigee, annular, eclipse, aphelion, antumbra, penumbra, umbraphiles, Bailey's Beads, orbital plane, temperature drop.
