This bundle combines two great astronomy learning materials: the small felt solar system and the constellations builder. They both come with Montessori 3-part cards and will get your kids excited by astronomy. This set is a great back to school supply for a homeschool or Montessori classroom.

The solar system is designed to learn the names of the planets and their order in the solar system. And the constellations builder comes with 16 of the most popular star clusters and the felt pieces to reconstruct them.

The 3-part cards have real high-resolution images of the planets. Montessori nomenclature cards are great for reinforcing vocabulary and can be ordered in either small or large format for the solar system. For the constellations, only the large cards are available.

The solar system includes:

1 | A 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
4 | A pouch (a simple one for the small cards, a 3-part card pouch for the large cards)
5 | A Control card

The orbits are sewn to give a 3D feeling.

The constellations builder includes:

1| A felt board: 29,5x40cm (11.6x15.8 inches)
2| A felt basket for holding the constellation pieces
3| A collection of dots and sticks to build the constellations
4| 16 Constellation 3-part cards
5| A 3-part card pouch

Constellations in the cards:

Andromeda, Aquila, Auriga, Bootes, Canis Major, Cassiopeia, Cepheus, Corona Borealis, Cygnus, Draco, Hercules, Lyra, Orion, Perseus, Ursa Major, and Ursa Minor
