Paint Stick Solar System Project - this is such a fun way for kids to learn about our solar system and the name of the planets (homeschool, science, prek, kindergarten,first grade, second grade, third grade)
Planet game-Stencil planet names and point values onto paper bands. The farther away a planet is from the sun, the more points it should have (it'll be harder to throw a rocket into it). Tape the bands onto buckets. Place buckets on rope rings. To make the sun, glue a round piece of yellow paper to cardboard.
