Solar System Puzzle Kit: An Activity for Earth and Space Science.
Vogt, Gregory L.; Rosenberg, Carla B.
This Solar System Puzzle Kit for grades 5-8, allows students to create an eight-cube paper puzzle of the solar system and may be duplicated for classroom use or used as a take home activity for children and parents. By assembling the puzzle, hand-coloring the bodies of the solar system, and viewing the puzzle's 12 sides, students can reinforce their knowledge of the many fascinating worlds that make up the solar system. In addition to puzzle pieces, the kit contains interesting facts about the Sun, each of the planets, asteroids, and comets. The resource section at the end of the publication provides sources to obtain additional resources on the solar system including those on the Internet.
