Let's go to space!
You don't need to go to space to explore the fascinating science about it. Try one of these activities today!
Space captures the imagination of many a child, and whether you're looking at planets, space travel, or life in space, we have something to get your little astronauts thinking scientifically about this cosmic subject!
Starting with a simple thought about a thirsty astronaut, your class can work like scientists to explore materials, the water cycle and mixtures - all through the filter of space and adventure.
