Astrological Planets –There are eight planets in the Solar System. In order of increasing distance from the Sun, they are the four terrestrials, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, then the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Pluto was discredited by some...but I'm not buying it! lol
Up in the sky: themed crafts for toddlers and preschoolers
Astronomy posters group project. My teacher required prep time was actually pretty minimal for this (less than an hour)! Done with first grade level students. The kids were so pleased with the results and had tons of fun doing the craft in the middle. Earth, the moon, stars, the sun, and the solar system.

Small unit guide to go along with a Sun and Earth Unit. I teach about the Sun and Earth before I head into the Solar System. If you're looking for something a little more thorough, you can check out my Solar System Unit. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Solar-System-Science-Unit-K-3
