Free Space Printables

They're here - Marc's first set of Printables!
We love Outer Space and all the learning opportunities your little monsters get from the sky above! So a set of 10 Space colouring pages is a perfect way to start off our Printables Collection.
M is for Mercury
M is for Mercury (and Monkeys)
Mercury is the closest of the planets to the Sun and it is visible to observers on Earth in the late evening or early morning sky.
It's nicked named the Morning Star.
Mercury is made out of a large percentage of heavier elements and is essentially a large metal ball of iron with a very thin silicate crust.
The planet Mercury is too small and has too little gravity to hold onto an atmosphere, which means that there is almost no air on Mercury.
Mercury is just a little bit larger than Earth's moon.
Mercury has no moons.         

J is for Jupiter
J is for Jupiter (and Jellyfish)
Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our Solar System. The Earth could fit inside Jupiter more than 1000 times.
Jupiter is a very stormy planet (that's why he looks so angry!), which never seem to end. The many different cloud formations and storms in the atmosphere also make Jupiter a very colorful planet.                                    

Jupiter's great red spot "The Eye of Jupiter" , is where a giant storm has been raging for at least 300 years.

Did you know Jupiter has rings? They are faint and are only able to be viewed when Jupiter passes in front of the Sun- can you help to draws Jupiter's Rings on?!

Jupiter has 50 official moons and 12 provisional moons. The four largest and most well-known were discovered by Galileo in the year 1610- named: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
