Create a vision of tomorrow with your students today as they imagine being part of the crew of a shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Our resource turns your students into the scientists, engineers, astronauts, and leaders who will continue the vision for space exploration. Become an astronaut as you learn about the different jobs on a shuttle mission. Learn about telescopes and how they are used to look into space. Blast off into space with manned and unmanned spacecrafts. Plan your trip to Mars by collecting items you would need for your 2.5 year mission. Build your own rover to explore another planet. Then it's off to the moon and learning about the Apollo 11 mission. Learn about life aboard the ISS, and predict how different toys would work in space. Finally, look ahead at the future of space exploration and find out is commercial travel in space is really possible. Aligned to the Next Generation State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional hands-on experiments, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.
