Solar System Trading Card


Students will choose a planet to research and use the information they gather to create a trading card for a planet in the solar system.

Included are 18 full page planet trading card templates in blackline for ease of printing.

This is a Customary System Trading Card (with American spelling) and a Metric System Trading Card (with UK / Canadian spelling) for each of the eight planets:

• Mercury

• Venus

• Earth

• Mars

• Jupiter

• Saturn

• Uranus

• Neptune

This packet also includes a Customary System template and a Metric System template without graphics that can be used for any of the planets.

Students can either color in the planet or draw their own, depending on which templates you choose to use.

Please Note: planets are not shown to scale. Each template includes a similarly-sized planet graphic to make the best use of space on the trading cards.

This classroom-tested resource makes a great bulletin board display.
