The theme this month is SPACE! We'll look at the space program in three activities. The first looks at how vehicles and capsules have changed as our space program has grown. The second activity looks at the mathematics of orbiting the earth. A third activity looks at the size of space through building a scale model of our solar system. You may be surprised!
