Use this month’s out-of-this-world science flash cards to help children explore space

science: space

Space is one of those topics that never fails to fire up children’s enthusiasm for learning. There is something immediately attention grabbing about the wonders of our solar system and you can utilise children’s natural curiosity to engage them in some interesting science lessons. Using some simple everyday resources, such as oranges, balls, globes and torches, combined with this month’s fun flash cards, you can help your teaching to really take off.

    Looks Like Fun

    This resource will help me explain these important concepts to the children. I’m sure we’ll have great fun demonstrating the orbits of Earth and the moon.
