Solar Systems for Kids: Freebies and Resources

Sharing is caring!

The solar system for kids posts on my site have been a consistent success.  You guys like them and I try to continue to bring you good resources for teaching the solar system and to help your kids create solar system projects!  Here is a nice list of items to help you help your children learn and understand our amazing solar system!

Activities for kids: solar system education

Solar Systems for Kids Free Resources:

Printables are so much fun for my kids but we can’t JUST do worksheets!  In addition to some solar systems for kids freebies, I have found other fun ways to reinforce this must-have learning!  (Psst… if you haven’t studied our solar system in years, you might be surprised to find that instead of the 9 planets we learned about when we were in school, we now have only EIGHT!)

  1. Can your kids find the Planet vocabulary words in this Solar System word find?
  2. Loving these “out of this world” space mazes from Kids Activities Blog!
  3. Why not take your solar systems for kids education just a bit farther with this adorable snack plate from Creative Kids Snacks?
  4. Handwriting is something that has to be practiced continuously in order for improvement.  So, use this Solar System Vocabulary handwriting worksheet in your Unit Study!
  5. Here is a collection of several solar system printables and activities to enhance your unit study!
  6. Create a solar system with this free printable ebook!  I had been on the hunt for printable scaled planet images and it took me so long to find them that I wrote a post.  Then, to my utter dismay the site that I found them on shut down.  So, I created some for you. 🙂
