Some subjects are too interesting to be left at school! Carry on your love of science at home with Stars & Planets – an activity-packed exploration of space and astronomy.
Divided into sections, the book starts with fast facts on topics including stars, galaxies, planets, the Solar System, the Universe, and space travel; and the book ends with charts of Solar System facts and space record breakers. Using this information, you can complete the puzzles in the main part of the book, plus there are hands-on activities such as drawing your own scale model of the Solar System and creating a lunar eclipse. Finally, test your new-found knowledge with the quick quizzes (with answers supplied, but no peeking!). You can keep track of your achievements throughout with a star-chart to fill in every time you finish a page.
