Outer space is so intriguing for little minds (and big ones as well!)
I just finished creating some fun outer space themed mystery pictures! The 120 Chart Mystery Pictures are great for younger kids to practice numbers and colors, and the Multiplication Mystery Pictures let older ones review those facts! All the feedback I've gotten on these activities say that kids absolutely LOVE them!
I've also compiled a great list of books (fiction and non-fiction) that we like to read when learning about outer space!
