Activities

United in Space

Activity 2.1

It's time to find out about fellow astronauts and research the countries who have been to the ISS. Students will research a chosen country and create a card to highlight the key points. They will learn about how information can be presented in different ways, for example in long form or short form.

Making History

Activity 5.1

Where are you in space history? Students will add their own birthdates to the space timeline and interview family and friends about their favourite space memory.

The Journey Home

Activity 6.2

Challenge your students with this great map-making activity. This lesson compliments teaching on units of measurement, length and distance (cm, m and km) and will develop pupils' understanding of the concept of 'scale'.

Send a Postcard to Space

Activity 6.3

Our Space Apprentices (and Tim!) are back safely on Earth, so it's time write a postcard to the astronauts on the ISS and let them know we are all back safely. Students will use creative writing skills and succinct language to convey their special message on the postcard.
