Next, I gave my son a pre-made flip book template and a page of circles to cut out (directions below). We used this construction paper.
this pre-made planet sheet and have students cut out each planet.
Here's a picture showing the dimensions of each flap for the flip book, starting from the top measuring down. We used this construction paper.
Plants For Kids.
Here's another fun activity we did showing the order of the planets from the sun and how they orbit. All you need is black construction paper, colored construction paper for the planets, a glue stick, scissors and a white crayon!
Finally, for my teacher friends who have second-fourth graders, here is a simple flip book where students fold, cut the flaps and write facts on the inside. This is great for taking notes or for a fact matching activity.
I hope you've been inspired!
