Space Homeschooling Ideas

Star Date – June 2020 –  IHaveNoIdeaWhatDayItIs

Dear Mummy, all the days are merging into one, as we continue on our homeschooling mission. There’s no going back for the foreseeable future and with plenty of hurdles to navigate. Mainly the extra long school holidays and closures we’ve decided to escape into space. I have my trusty crew with me, also isolated and locked into this adventure.

It’s the final frontier, one in which we’ve never discovered before and both my folks are helping me on my learning journey. Even my Barbie Doll has come along for the ride! We’re dressed and ready to go.

We’ve decided to do some really cool Space themed topics for the next couple of weeks, inspired by the SpaceXMission which launched last month by NASA.

Make new friends! Thanks Tremor for being my space buddy

Heres a little background about what’s triggered our learning this month. We watched as Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley were blasted off into space. When NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley were launched toward the ISS, they weren’t alone. Joining them on the SpaceX mission was a stuffed toy named Tremor. The sequinned dinosaur, made by Ty was used as a zero-gravity indicator for astronauts on the Dragon Endeavour. I was super lucky to get my hands on this little fella, so this week we’re focusing on Space as my home-schooling topic!

I was amazed when I saw my Ty Beanie Baby Tremor, the Flippable Dinosaur in Space. He’s the astronauts mascot, so I’ve been having fun making TikTok videos with him! Which toy would you take up into space with you?
