Grade 1 Worksheets
Keeping this preschool outer space theme simple is the best thing to do as we want our preschoolers & children to know that there is an outer space but we don’t want to make it so complicated that we lose their interest in the lesson topic.
-Show them what outer space looks like by means of a picture and explain that our earth is in outer space (show them earth in a picture)
-explain to them that our moon and sun are in outer space and our earth is moving in circles around them (show them how this is done using any pictures you have of outer space, use your finger and have them look as your finger moves around the picture)
-there are other planets in space that don’t have people on it, they are the stars we see at night time
-up close those planets would be very big but we see them as twinkling stars in the sky at night
-in outer space there is no air and that is why space astronauts wear special uniforms that give them air to breath when they are up in space
-astronauts are people that go in a spaceship outside of our earth to land on other planets to learn about them and to take pictures for us to see
-have pictures, puzzles, toys, toys and books of the things you are teaching them about that are related to space.
-look at the pictures with the class at first so you can answer any questions they have and then not to long after you will hear the preschoolers “reading” the books set out by describing what they see in the pictures
-you can also supply the children with little Styrofoam type balls for the art centre and they can create their own planet(s).
- Why not have the children draw what they think outer space looks like. Drawing planets and things like the earth, space shuttles and different things related to space.
