If your kid’s curiosity about the sun, moon, and stars seems to be growing by the day, then it may be time to introduce them to the solar system in which we live.
A felt solar system with Montessori 3-part cards is a great learning tool to get your children interested in astronomy and allow them to gain a greater appreciation for science.
This listing includes:
1 | Felt board 45x60 cm (17.7x24 inches approx.)
2 | The Sun and 8 Planet felt pieces
3 | 9 3-part cards of the planets and Sun with a pouch
4 | 1 Control card
Our little corner of the universe is very unique in that it is the only one we know of in our limited exploration of the stars around us, which contains life. Our neighboring planets are full of character and mystery.
Some are as desolate and dreary as a polar research station and others are so gigantic they make our little planet look like a grain of sand on the beach.
The orbits are sewn to give a 3D feeling.
The cards are printed on 250gr. cardboard and laminated with 125 microns laminating pouches, the edges are rounded to protect children from being scratched.
3 PART CARDS DIMENSIONS:
Whole card - 7x9cm (2.7x3.5“)
Part card - 7x7cm (2.7x2.7”)
