Product Description
This is a fun activity packed resource and powerpoint about the solar system and lunar phases. There are 30 pages of printable activities and worksheets and an accompanying 30 slide powerpoint.

The phases of the moon is covered in full and in a very elegant way in this packet. I have made a unique moon box complete with a revolving moon which will allow your students to easily visualize the phases of the moon.

Solar System

The Starry Messenger - a 2 page science literacy newspaper with accompanying worksheet

Planet Size - in this activity the students cut out the planets which are in proportion to each other. This is a great visual activity and perfect for an interactive notebook

Planet Distance - this is a classic activity where the students place the planets in proportion to their distance from the sun. It gives them a terrific insight into the vast distance of the universe.

Make a Solar System Comic - blank template with accompanying planet cut-outs where the students can make their own comic. Notes in the powerpoint presentation will help them fill in the facts.

Make a Sundial Activity
This is a lovely introduction to sundials. Simply print the sundial and let your students make and keep a fully functional equatorial sundial that will work at your latitude.

Over the Moon Activity
This is by far my favourite activity. This is a unique way where the students will see why the moon waxes and wanes. They will make a moon box with a revolving moon and understand how it is lit by the sun. A very simple and effective way of teaching the lunar phases. It’s perfect for guided discovery. This is easily made from common household items.
