SPACE Themed Satellite Poster, Matching Cards & Hands-on Craft Activity
Approximately 6,000 satellites orbit our earth, with only about 40% operational. The rest continue to orbit as junk pieces of metal, unable to be retrieved. Satellites provide a better view of the earth than from the ground as well as see into space better than earth bound telescopes. This location is collect data, anticipate disasters, telecommunication and imaging.
Learn about satellites with these interactive resources - children work on matching/memory skills with these full color satellite matching cards, learn about the parts/anatomy of the satellite with a detailed poster and create their own satellites from "junk" around the house. Includes five pages of resources, these resources also included in the SPACE Unit Study Bundle.
