A relay game for Space & the Solar System

Relay games are good for consolidation of new knowledge as well as listening to others. Pairs ( individuals if you can think of enough questions ) are dealt cards which have an answer and a question on each. The player chosen to start asks the question on their card. The person with the answer , gives the answer and asks their question. This continues round the class until all the questions have been asked.
