Recycled Spaceship

IMG_1784This is a great activity for young children. Challenge them to make a space ship out of items at home. We used cereal boxes, tinfoil, paint, pens, and egg crates. Talk to the kids about zero gravity. Ask them to remember how they will store food and water. How will they deal with human waste? Follow up with a writing activity that allows them to tell you all about their spaceship.
