Head to the Resource Library to download the free sorting cards – Constellations and Planets Sort. It includes two sets each containing 20 labeled photograph cards for sorting.

Use these cards to support a child’s interest in the topic of the Solar System, the Milky Way. These cards would be a helpful addition to your Space Theme printables. Print on card stock and laminate for longer use. After cutting cards, draw with marker or stick dot stickers to the back of each set – one color for each set. Place the label cards in a row. Explain the difference between the two categories. Invite the child to sort cards into two categories.

The goal is for children to grasp the concept and have a visual presentation to learn the difference between the two. After the child completed the task, invite him or her to flip the cards and self-check. Each card has to be under the correct category based on the dot color.
