Resources

Welcome to the Stardome Teachers Resource centre!

In the drop down menus below, you’ll find teacher resources and activities for your class to download for free. These resources are at primary level, but even if your class is a little younger, or a little older, you might find them useful.

We’ll be adding new worksheets and class activities each month so keep checking back or sign up for School Satellite, our monthly teachers newsletter and you’ll get all the info straight to your inbox.

If you have any feedback on the worksheets or class activities, email delysed@stardome.org.nz
