Traveling Across the Solar System Algorithm Game Boards

Posted by admin on

Solar System Algorithms Game Boards are a fun way to review the order of the planets in the solar system. Children build a path or algorithm from the word Start through the planet squares to the word end. They can use arrow squares or rockets squares in the set to build paths. However, that will mean covering the planets and their names. Children can draw arrows to create their paths if they prefer.

Getting the Traveling Across the Solar System Algorithm Game Boards Pages

First, you will need to download the set.

Second, if you don’t have Acrobat Reader you will need to download it. The algorithm page is an Acrobat Reader PDF file.

Third, you must go to your download file and open the page.  You may be asked if you want the file to open right after you download it. You won’t have to hunt for it in your download file if you are.

Using B/W or Color Game Boards

If you choose to laminate the game boards, they printing the color version makes sense. They will look pretty and it will justify the cost of printing in color. However, if you plan to use them like worksheets printing them in B/W makes more sense.

Exploring the Game Boards

You will find that some of the game boards offer a number of ways that your children to complete the game boards. Here is how you could introduce your children to the game boards.

  • First, you can work through a part of a game board with your children. It will help them understand how to place the arrows in the boxes. Remember that the arrows they draw or the printed arrows or printed rockets should point in the direction they will need to go to connect to the next step. They need to begin at the word Start and finish in the box that will lead them to the End box.
  • Second, children can work with a partner to complete the gameboard. They can take turns placing the arrows in the squares.
