PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 20 Space Task Card resource is very unique. It can be utilized in a clue gathering, puzzle solving, highly active and engaging activity for those learning about Space, Stars, Planets, Distances, Seasons, Tides as well as Galaxies and other Celestial Objects or as an alternative to worksheet review for older students. What I love to do is have the kids go through the activity for the first half or two thirds of our review period then spend the remainder of the time reviewing the questions as a class.

Please view the preview to gain a sense of how easily and effectively this resource could be incorporated into your Space Unit. Perfect for many grades.

This activity follows my Space Unit directly which can be found HERE

- Once the group has solved the puzzle, they are the winner.
