Kids love learning about space! Today I’m sharing a Free Printable Solar System Hat that you can use along with your space unit!
There is just so many fun things to learn about during a space unit. There’s just something amazing about the wonder of the moons, the planets and everything that comes along space. Hats are also a favorite for the kiddos so I thought it would be perfect way to help reinforce the planets.
This project is super simple. You’ll need to download the Free Printable Solar System Hat at the bottom of the post for each child. I’ve included a front and back strip for the hat, but if your students heads are a bit too big, you can have them glue the hat onto a sentence strip to make it longer/bigger for them.
To make the color system hat, the students will color all of the planets along with the sun. They can then cut the planets and hat out. You can have them glue the planets on randomly, or help them place them in the order closest to the sun to the furthest.
last, help them staple the hat together so it fits their head and they’re ready to go! They are so proud to show them off and is a great conversation starter with other people around the school or to show their parents what they’ve been learning about!
