Card Games

This resource contains three ideas for card games involving Planets of the Solar System. It includes instructions for playing the games and the cards of the Planets with key facts about them. The games are Trump Card, Snap and Families. This activity has been provided by European Universe Awareness (EU-UNAWE).

Building Images

In this activity, students create colour images from satellite data. This allows them to study how different surfaces reflect different wavelengths of light, how coloured images are created using an RGB model, and how band combinations can be chosen to examine a particular landscape effectively.

Celestia Navigation

Celestia is a spaceflight simulator that allows you to explore real astronomical data as you fly through space. The majority of content is related to our Solar System.

This resource, from the Royal Observatory Greenwich, acts as a basic guide and explores the potential of the program with a sample Key Stage...

Build Your Own Universe

This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour Lego bricks are assigned to different quarks and leptons. The quarks can be put together to make hadrons, such as protons and neutrons. The blocks can also be used to show...

Build the Station Simulation

With just a few materials, building a paper model of the International Space Station (ISS) can become a class project. This publication contains a brief overview of the ISS, its parts, the science that occurs on board, instructions, and extension fact sheets. Learn about the ISS, explore fun facts, simulate...

Biosphere

This resource contains activities based around the concept of astronauts living in space. It is intended that students try out all the activities before producing a specification for their biosphere.

*Breathing: this activity describes how one can use simple equipment to measure the volume of air breathed at...

AstroZoo

This activity requires students to use computer software to try to save a space borne tourist attraction, AstroZoo, which has various exotic space creatures, but has fallen on hard times. The zoo was once a great success, but bad management has seen oxygen reserves exhausted, creature enclosures overpopulated,...

James Webb Space Telescope: Vibration Design Testing

Aimed at upper primary learners this resource provides a design and technology activity based on the challenges engineers and space scientists faced whilst working on the creation of the telescope. Children design and make a model telescope to be launched into space. They carry out...

James Webb Space Telescope: Keeping Things Cold

In this activity children learn about how the James Webb Space Telescope is designed to keep itself cold. They find out about the sunshield and how it works then explore how they can keep cold things cold, when they are exposed to heat; investigating the best material and number of layers...

James Webb Space Telescope: Investigating How Freezing Affects Materials

In this resource children investigate how the properties of different materials change when they are frozen. The two activities are based on a challenge scientists and engineers had when designing the James Webb Space Telescope: that the space facing side of the telescope needed to...
