Space homeschool ideas

We have been learning about the solar system and all things space related in our home school this month. We have been having a great time as there is so many ways that you can explore this topic. Here are the space homeschool ideas that we came up with.

Interactive notebook pages

We used some worksheets that I made to help aid our learning which Faith enjoys cutting out and sticking into her topic book. We used these sheets to learn about the history of space, the planets in our solar system, the sun, moon and galaxies.

  1. Some great resources. I love using apps of the night sky. This week Venus has been very visible on an evening, and my little girl was so interested to see that it was a planet and not a star!#KidsandKreativity

  3. These are great tips and ideas for learning about space at home. We had a brief period of homeschooling when my eldest was recovering from surgery and space was one of the topics we covered. One of our favourite activities was drawing a picture of the solar system with chalk on black paper and sticking different coloured buttons on to represent each of the planets. #KidsandKreativity
