Suited for Spacewalking: Teacher's Guide with Activities.
Vogt, Gregory L.; Manning, Cheryl A., Ed.
Spacewalking has captured the imagination of generations of children and adults since science-fiction authors first placed their characters on the moon. This publication is an activity guide for teachers interested in using the intense interest many children have in space exploration as a launching point for exciting hands-on learning opportunities. The guide begins with brief descriptions of the space environment, the history of spacewalking, the Space Shuttle spacesuit, and working in space. Those materials are followed by four sets of activities that enable children to explore the space environment as well as the science and technology behind functions of spacesuits. The activities can be adapted for students of many ages. The chart on curriculum application at the back of the guide is designed to help teachers incorporate activities into various subject areas.
