Astronomy Terms Domino Puzzle Game

Sometimes the number of new terms in Science class can be daunting to students!  I wanted to provide my students with something more fun than flash cards, so I made this Astronomy Terms Domino Puzzle to help them learn the new vocabulary.

It's pretty simple to use.  The 24 domino pieces are cut out and the students will begin with the "Start" piece.  From there they have to match up the term to its definition until they reach the "Finish" piece.  Two different sizes of the same puzzle and solutions are provided!

I like to print these puzzles out on colorful paper - it's just so much more fun that way!  If the students are taking them home to study I let them cut the puzzle pieces out.  If I am making a set to stay in the classroom I laminate them and cut them out to use year after year.  Students can work independently or cooperatively.  Here a student is checking her classmate's solution.

I always have students asking for these puzzles for every unit - they really are a great way to review!
