We also made star constellations. I again divided a black sheet of construction paper into 10 spaces and wrote the numbers 1-10 in white. Then the students had to count out the correct number of shiny star stickers and place them on the number to form the number constellations.
Look at our awesome setup for our dramatic play space center!!
This is the shuttle in our dramatic play center. The kiddos painted it white, and again I added the fun stuff to turn it into a shuttle. They had a "blast" going in and pretending to be astronauts!
With each theme I teach I like to incorporate puzzles into the unit . They can either be printed off and you can have the students cut and paste them, or you can save money and resources by laminating them and cutting them up and having students use the model to correctly put the puzzle back together. That is how I chose to use it with this theme. I've done it both ways, though. Puzzles are so wonderful for the kiddos to do. They're great skill builders. Puzzles help with problem solving skills, analytical skills, fine motor, etc.....and....Who doesn't love puzzles!??!!
I have so many more activities and ideas in my brand new space unit that is available in my store. Here's a preview pic of some of the things that are included in the 137 page pack!
For your convenience, I've included links to some of the things I used in my space unit that are available for purchase on Amazon (affiliate):
