Space Day

Celebrate Space Day! Every year on the first Friday of May, we celebrate Space Day by learning all about space and space exploration, and how science, technology, engineering, and math help us explore the universe.

To mark the occasion, we have some free resources to share with your class.

What’s in the Pack?

Your topical teaching resources includes:

  • 4 ThinkIts: Ask your students to think about the fastest thing in the universe, the names of the planets, the movement of the Earth, and more.
  • 1 Fact Sheet: Learn about the International Space Station and where it was first launched into space.
  • 1 Lesson Plan: Have your students research Mars and explore why some scientists believe there was once life there.
