Learn to spell the names of all the planets in our solar system. Put them in alphabetical order and then order of size.


Use the google form and see if you can unjumble the planet names.


Create a travel brochure for a planet of your choice or to promote space tourism in general. Make sure you include information about travel times, accomodation, food and things to do and see. If you have access to a PC, this could be done on Word or Google Docs.


Below is a template you could print off and use.
