I am going to be student teaching next semester, but am thinking about a classroom theme for my future classroom! I wanted to make my classroom outer space themed, so that the theme can be both educational and fun. Does anyone have any outer space themed projects or displays that they have loved doing with their students in the past? I don't think outer space is always as relatable for students because they can look at the sky, but not really experience or see things up close and in person for the most part. Any ideas? Thank you!

I did a 3-2-1....READ board for tracking AR reading progress. They each had an SLS rocket with name on it that they moved as they reached each major percentage of their goal. They started on Earth and moved up to Mars.

I might steal this idea as well! I love the innate connection between science and reading. it would also be a great reference point in the classroom when learning about the planets. For older students, I think it would be difficult to post student success in such a public manner, so maybe using the planets to do center work could be a good way to track students on a regular basis. Love the idea!

This was done by my classmates for a science board theme. Each planet had kid friendly facts about them. It's a great bulletin board to interest and excite students about learning about the solar system!
