For I dipped into the Future, far as human eye could see; saw the vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be. -Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1842

 Outer space is perhaps the final frontier for man. Even though the rest of the solar system objects may seem like tiny dots from Earth, our celestial neighbours are still important to learn about.

This comprehensive book contains information on all major planets, major star constellations, space exploration and our solar system. Included are fact sheets, fast facts, wordsearches, crossword puzzles, Q's & A's, Student Activity Sheets, Teacher/parent resources and tips, lesson plans and crafts and activities.

The note pages, worksheet pages, and journal sheet add another dimension when making use of the information in either flip file/folder, lapbook or scrapbook.

Ideally suited for homeschooling, the information and activities are easily adaptable for young learners from around Grade 3 to those in around Grade 7/8 age-group.

There ARE activities for much younger children, K-2/2, including coloring, songs, puzzles and even a Tic-Tac-Toe Board Game, but the writing activites and worksheets are more appropriate for older students.

The language and instruction will require explanation and discussion with younger learners.   Children in Grades 4/5 upwards will be able to work independently.

 Page count is approximate due to the various additional downloads that accompany this product!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
