Solar System Activity: Play Space Race to practice identifying and correctly ordering the eight planets in our solar system. Attach the two Space Race pages together so that all eight planets are lined up. The goal of this game is to be the fastest player to fill up their solar system. Players take turns spinning the Space Spinner. When a player lands on a planet, they can place that planet on their solar system. Planets should be placed in the actual order of the solar system. If a player lands on a planet that is already in their solar system, their turn is skipped. The first player to fill their solar system is the winner! Check the answer sheet to make sure that the planets are in the correct order.
To test your solar system skills, take turns asking and answering the planet trivia questions. Use the answer key to check your answers!
