The list of activities are as follows:
Every astronaut needs a spacesuit to keep them safe. Using the resources provided, children will research the types of spacesuits astronauts need and the features they include, then they will design their own suit.
2. The Space Quizzes – Your Body in Space, Mars Quiz and Code Club
Our trio of quizzes is a fun and exciting way to learn about space, whether you run each quiz as a group activity or for children to complete individually. The final quiz in the trio ask children to make their own Scratch quiz via Code Club and we understand this may not be possible in your library if it has limited digital accessibility. One option is to give this third quiz to the eager children who might like an extra challenge to complete at home!
Learn about time and duration while completing a comic strip! The creative/visual elements in this activity, such as drawing, provide a way in to the complex topic of time, and challenge children to make links between analogue and digital time.
This activity uses the premise of rock samples collected by the ExoMars rover to help children practise their visual differentiation skills to crack the code.
If you do run an event using our resources, we’d love to hear about and if possible post about your event on our Get Inspired page! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or share your photos on social media using the hashtag #MarsDiary.
