Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 10 pages | Grades: K - 2

Create a vocabulary and writing center with a word wall and writing templates that cover objects in the sky.

Space Science Vocabulary for Primary Students

This set of 18 vocabulary cards and accompanying writing worksheets are designed to help students make sense of different objects they see in the sky. Some of the vocabulary terms include:

  • Clouds, constellation, day, night
  • Earth, moon, sun
  • Planet, stars, full moon

And more! 

Each vocabulary card contains a large-print, easy-to-read word and an image to aid retention. We have also included three accompanying worksheets to have students practice identifying the new vocabulary words and using them in their writing. You can display these on a bulletin board or in a pocket chart center for students to access during writer’s workshop.

Through this activity, students will show increased vocabulary and understanding of different objects found in the sky.
