Looking for a fun, hands on activity for students to learn about and review their knowledge of the different planets?
This set of sorting mats allows students to match the picture and various facts to each of the eight planets. Facts include: how it was discovered, who or what the planet was named after, how many moons it has, its surface appearance, and what it is made of. Statistical facts such as distance from the sun, time to orbit the sun, size, average temperature, and time to rotate are also included. An answer key is provided for students to self-check their work.
Print and prep once and then use for years. Makes a great addition to any study of our solar system.
