Kick off your Earth/Space unit with astronaut training. This includes stations that students will rotate to prepare for space exploration. They will be tested in teamwork, problem solving, space knowledge and more.
Students will differentiate between the definitions of universe, galaxy and solar system as they sort cards into each category. They will understand that the solar system includes the sun and all celestial objects that orbit the sun. They will also understand where objects on the Earth fit in this system.
A worksheet is included for students to record their understanding.
