Astronaut Cutout

Kindergarten students learned about the U.S. missions to the moon. We watched an Apollo 11 video created by previous Barrett students, Milayka and Jesse. Then the students rotated through centers:

  • Read moon books in the space capsule tent
  • Pick up pretend moon rocks with a special tool
  • Try on Flight Suits – Photo opportunity!
  • Dress an astronaut in spacesuit on the SMART Board
  • Smile for the camera behind the astronaut cutouts with the moon landscape
  • Role play with models (toys) of astronauts, rockets, and lunar rovers
  • Launch stomp rockets to the moon and record data on a graph
