Space 3-Part Cards

Few things capture kids imaginations like space exploration.  From classic moments like the moon landing to tales of robots and aliens, there's lots of fun things to learn about as part of a space unit.  While there is a lot of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in space, you can easily tie in history, social justice issues, geography, reading, and writing.  Here are some great learning toys I've found to add to your space homeschooling lessons, too!

This blog post and printable was originally published April, 11, 2017 and was updated June 16, 2021

If you're familiar with my blog, you know that we're nuts about Safari Ltd Toobs of figurines.  My goal is to put out matching printables for every toob (at the moment- I have 35 toobs plus several life cycle sets).  Before I can add some more themes, I'm going back over my original, super old blog posts and redoing the pictures and printables to update them.  Today, my focus is on the Safari Ltd Space Toob!

The Space Toob has 10 plastic figurines that stand about 2 inches tall and include astronauts and space vehicles.  My family enjoys using them in sensory and messy play (they clean up great) as well as in small world play.  Of course, as a homeschooling family, we love Safari toobs to encourage learning opportunities.  They increase kids' vocabulary and enrich their writing, introduce them to things they wouldn't see in normal life, and can be used for math activities, too.  Scroll down for more ideas for using the matching cards in your classroom!

Once you have the three cards, you can present them to your child in the traditional Montessori method.  Have the child match the picture card with the label to the other two cards.  They can also match the Safari Ltd Space Toob to the picture cards or label the figurines with the cards.  The child can also spell out the words with a movable alphabet like printable cards or shaped letters.
