Solar System Activity

So, my sister and I worked together on creating a solar system banner.  My sister created all of the planet clipart and I put the activity together.  My 2 year old, Chloe, wanted to help mommy out with creating the banner.  She absolutely loved the activity and thought it was so cool to see her picture on the astronaut.  Check out the photos below!
Color and cut out all of the pieces
Spaceship and star cutouts get glued onto each planet. 
Each cutout has information about that planet.

Chloe was a big helper!
Chloe wanted to glue all of the pieces down.
Chloe liked the way Saturn was colored.
We took all of the planets and place them in order according
to their location from the sun.
After we placed the planets in order, I asked Chloe to choose
a planet that she would like to explore if she was an astronaut.
Chloe was filling out the question, "If I was an astronaut,
I would visit ________ because ..."
Chloe choose Mars.  She was ready to glue her astronaut
and question onto the planet.
Chloe personalized her astronaut with a picture of herself!
Chloe had SO much fun!

The planet banner!

Mitosis Activity

My sister and I decided to open a Teachers Pay Teachers store together.  My sister has a background in science and is a high school Biology teacher.  We wanted to create a game that students would enjoy.  This game has exceeded our expectations.  I gave a very similar version to my students but with a math concept and they were begging for me to create more!  ALL of my students were engaged.

You can find the mitosis game by going to our Teachers Pay Teachers store HERE
