Space is such a fun topic to teach and learn. Planets, stars, the milky way, moons, stars and of course a shooting star. It’s pure magic!!
Although it is absolutely real life, there is just something about it that is purely fascinating! That is what makes this space worksheets for kids set so much fun!
This set will encourage children to learn the names of the planets, the order of the planets, as well as other objects that are in the solar system. Children will review how to spell each name as well as practice writing them. There is even a space for children to color.
These worksheets would be wonderful to use in conjunction with other space learning fun as well or as a fun weekend activity, too. The kids won’t even realize that they’re learning because space exploration and thinking about space is always a fun time.

Space Worksheets for Kids
What I love most about these simple worksheets for kids is that they’re really easy to learn and get used to using. The kids will build confidence in their writing skills and confidence on their spelling.
Not only that, but they’ll work on counting skills as well. Once the kids get used to writing out and spelling the words, they can then focus in on coloring and make the pages pretty, too.
This is all helpful because there is more than one way to learn the space terms and these Space Worksheets are perfect. The different forms of learning are expressed through these worksheets to help keep the activities interesting and different enough from each other. Kids will love these Space Worksheets!

Recommended Space Books for Kids
We have included each of the planets of the solar system on a chart that is labeled as well as a chart that the names can be filled in.
We have also included a space for children to write the names of each of the planets. Each of these tasks is reiterating the names of the planets which will help children learn them.
You’ll find some of the favorite space books listed below. We love to combine reading with learning and these books are a great way to really dive into space exploration even more. What I love about these books is that they appeal to a wide age of kids. You can sit and have reading time easily with these books or use them as a great way to assign some fun book reports, too.
