I found out that I will be teaching Grade 9s again in September and I am very excited. One of my favorite units to teach in High School Science is the Grade 9 Space Exploration unit! Day One is always a fun day because the students and I just have a Q&A day. They write their wildest, wackiest and weirdest space questions and I spend the class answering them.
The questions range from the simple:
What is a black hole?
What is a shooting star?
To the profound:
Do you think there are aliens?
What is beyond the Universe?
and always includes some silly ones too:
Are Mars bars really from Mars?
Why is my teacher so out of this world? (My personal fave!)
We use up a lot of sticky notes with all of the questions they ask! Speaking of sticky notes, check out some of my finds!

Now for a space-themed freebie!
Some of my students have a hard time with the Astronomy unit because there is so much new vocabulary. So for them I made the Astronomy Terms Domino Puzzle.
My kiddies love it! Hopefully yours will too.
Here is how I store my games: in a giant ziploc bag with duct tape on the bottom so I can hole punch it.

I've been adding lots more of these Domino Puzzles in my TpT shop. Check them out! :)
