In the last few decades, our robot spacecraft have visited many of the planets and moons with which we share our cosmic neighborhood. In a Race to the Planets event, your group will get to know the Sun's family of planets more intimately with these activities:
Contents: Leader Guide (includes all event handout masters, training videos and playdough recipe), Planet Stickers, Planet Guide Cards, National Audubon Society Pocket Guide: Planets and Their Moons and Sample Take-Home Game.
Event handouts and game instructions are also available in Spanish. Contact Customer Service.
You may also be interested in purchasing the Take-Home game Race to the Planets. Other kits in the series include Night Sky Adventure, Moon Mission, and Cosmic Decoders available as Leader Kits and Take-Home games (see recommended products below).
About Family ASTRO
Family ASTRO, a national astronomy education program of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, helps educators of all types share the excitement of exploring our universe. With funding from the National Science Foundation and the help of astronomers, educators, parents, kids, and game designers, we have put together a number of hands-on activities, thought-provoking discussions, and fun games that let everyone get involved in astronomy.
At the heart of Family ASTRO is our series of Leader Kits that allow you to lead many fun and educational Astronomy Events for families, afterschool programs and clubs, and youth groups in your community (e.g, boys' and girls' clubs, Girl and Boy Scouts, park and recreation programs, etc.).
For hands-on Family ASTRO training, educators may be able to attend a workshop at one of our participating Regional Sites. Visit the Family ASTRO web site to see if there is an official location near you: http://www.astrosociety.org/education/family/sites/sites.html
