Timeline of Space Travel
We finished this week by learning the history of space travel. We read some facts together which helped us to understand what happened before man made it to the moon. We were all surprised to learn about the many animals that went to space first! Our favourite fact was that the Russians sent fruit flies to space in 1947 with corn to eat.
We then used our understanding of place value to sequence events on a timeline by date from the first rocket launch (1942) all the way to Tim Peake going to the International Space Station (2015).
