Communicating with Space ...

Think about all the ways you have communicated with people today?

Have you talked on the phone?
Have you sent an email?
Have you written a letter?
Have you video chatted with someone?

What ways do you think you could communicate with the International Space Station?

Think about what it would be like to be a NASA astronaut.
What kinds of things would you see?
What do you think you would experience?

That could be a great idea for brainstorming, writing a journal, or creating a blog post.

I remember the Challenger Space Shuttle.

Do you have any NASA-related memories?
Will our students have any memories of space exploration and discovery?

I came across a neat thing the other day related to NASA Astronauts.

According to the NASA site, you and your students can send greetings to the crew of the International Space Stations!
  • You can click on a postcard and then add a typed message.
  • You could also send a Holiday "tweet" on twitter the to NASA Astronauts ( @NASA_Astronauts )
Here is a Wonder of the Day from Wonderopolis that goes along with the Space topic too:
