There have been a lot of news articles dealing with space over the past week. First, Nasa’s Antares rocket exploded just after take-off to deliver supplies to the International Space Station, and then there was the Virgin Galactic spaceship that crashed. It’s definitely been a stressful week for the space travel industry. However, these incidents should not hinder the imaginations and ambitions of our young astronauts-in-training. Every industry has risks of some sort, and science continues to change and advance each day. So let’s keep our little explorers excited about learning. This week my focus is on space books and activities.
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured Hand Skills. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
