Hughes, Leah M.
A file folder, the drawings contained within this book, and materials such as crayons, glue, and straws are what is needed to make this resource a classroom tool for studying space-related topics with preschoolers. The activities in this book are designed to inspire preschoolers to use their creativity, inventiveness, imagination, and intuition. All activities are organized around the broader topics of the air above the earth, aviation education, and space beyond the earth. A section on space education resources is included as well as tips on integrating aviation into the curriculum. Vocabulary lists and related games and activities are provided along with background information on famous aviators, moon survival, and the planets. (DDR)
