Astronomy Fun on Bellaonline

Maybe you've noticed the little section called the DAILY CLICK on the BellaOnline main page? It has links to light-hearted games and activities to take your mind off work for awhile.

"The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground."
G K Chesterton

If you used to like to play the word game Hangman - or still do! - you can choose to get words from BellaOnline's various specialist topics. As an adult, I now find the name slightly bloodthirsty, but maybe that's part of the appeal to children.

The astronomy words are a mixture of general knowledge astronomy words and those which are a bit more advanced. So, for example, you might have _ o _ _ e t and you've guessed A, I, L, D, M, S. You can still make three more wrong guesses before you're in trouble. But would an "R" help?

Click to see the Astronomy Hangman game.

Word scramble
If Hangman's not to your taste, maybe a TO MASONRY Word Scramble? I mean, ASTRONOMY Word Scramble, of course. It's just the thing for people who like anagrams. How about this one: APECS I'll give you a hint - it begins with an "s," but you won't get any clues in the real game.

Click here for the Astronomy Word Scramble.

Word search
You can print a Word Search puzzle in order to look for the listed words. It might also be good for some vocabulary building, or just a quiet activity, for a young person. Click here for the Astronomy Word Search.

All of these games on astronomy or any other subjects that interest you, are also accessible in the menus that come up in the DAILY CLICK.

Or something more challenging? There are a few quizzes on astronomy. Each has ten questions and a choice of four answers. You get the answers and an explanation at the end. It's fun and a good way of increasing your knowledge. The astronomy quizzes are listed on the Free Education Quiz Listing page.

I've also put up some online jigsaws with an astronomy theme.

Have fun!
