What a FUN way to learn the solar system!
A Solar System Map Drill is a simple way to learn the planets and their order around the sun. here is how to begin…
1. First lesson: draw the sun onto the blank map.
2. Second lesson: (one week later) without looking at the map with the sun and the planets, draw the sun on the blank map you drew last week . Then draw the next planet from the sun (mercury) onto the blank map.
3. Third lesson: (one week later) without looking at the map with the planets draw the sun and first planet on the blank map that you added last week. (the sun and mercury). Then draw the next planet after Mercury to the blank map.
4. Fourth lesson: (one week later) repeat the last lesson and draw another planet onto the blank map.
On and on you go until all the planets have been drawn.
