Many of you have asked about materials for learning about the solar system in your Montessori homeschool preschool, and I’m so excited to review these new Montessori-Inspired Astronomy printables for you! As you know, Every Star is Different is one of my very favorite Montessori printable creators — and she’s done it again with this amazing bundle full of everything your preschooler or elementary child could want to know about outer space!
Here’s everything that’s included:
Plus this bonus:
5. Montessori-inspired Space Exploration Printable Pack
If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you’ll know that Lila takes a science class at our local science center each week. While she’s there, Nora and I are free to explore the museum, and we often take in a show at the planetarium. So I was so excited to see this Montessori-Inspired Stars Printable Pack, which gives us far more information about stars than I was prepared to explain to the girls on my own! I especially love the life cycle printables and the constellation 3-part cards — the girls will love being able to recognize them in the night sky!
The Montessori-Inspired Moon Printable Pack has the most beautiful REAL photographs of the moon included — from all angles! I was so excited to see the book-making activity, and my girls are going to love the Nocturnal/Diurnal Animal Sorting cards. Nora keeps telling us, “Owls are awake at night because they’re nocturnal” in the sweetest little voice, so I’m sure she’ll be over the moon [do you see what I did there? ;P] to learn about some other nocturnal animals!
The Montessori-Inspired Sun Printable Pack has so many fun activities! I knew the girls would love this solar eclipse sequencing activity, and it even inspired me to look up when the next solar eclipse will be — not until 2024 to be visible in North America, but Lila still remembers the last one. The sun safety cards will be especially helpful this summer, and I love the printable of the Trip Around the Sun Activity — usually used to celebrate birthdays in the Montessori classroom, it’s also helpful for learning the months in order and understanding the concept of a year as one whole trip around the sun.
The Montessori-Inspired Solar System Printable Pack has everything you need for studying the planets! It contains materials for all areas of the classroom and would make a fabulous preceding unit to a Montessori continent study. Printing out those planet book-making printables NOW!
Plus there is a *BONUS* printable pack: The Montessori-Inspired Space Exploration Printable Pack contains materials for learning about the people who studied the solar system throughout history as well as all of the vehicles used for space travel!
