Space and Planets Free Printable Resources
Space and Planets Theme Resources – Perfect for “World Space Week”. As with most of my resources a lot of these are designed to be laminated and with liberal use of velcro turned into repeatable folder tasks. My class all have a diagnosis of autism and communication difficulties. Half are PECS users. Some really enjoy worksheets (!!) particularly maths based. I hope you find this page of free space topic worksheets useful. They can probably be adapted for early years or KS1.
The SENresourcesblog has loads of links to more Space themed activities and books.
