The printable planets included in the resource can be used in many different ways. Ideas include:

  • attach the planets to a single piece of string in the correct order
  • put the planets on pop-sticks and have students simulate their orbits around the room
  • cut out the illustrations and write a fact file about each planet. 🪐
