Think about all the ways you have communicated with people today ...Have you talked on the phone?
Have you sent an email?
Have you written a letter?
Have you video chatted with someone? Do you wonder what ways you could communicate with the International Space Station? Do you wonder what it would be like to be a NASA astronaut?
What kinds of things would you see?
What do you think you would experience? That could be a great idea for brainstorming, writing a journal, or creating a blog post. I remember the Challenger Space Shuttle. Do you have any NASA-related memories?
Will our students have any memories of space exploration and discovery? I came across a neat thing the other day related to NASA Astronauts. According to the NASA site, you and your students can send greetings to the crew of the International Space Stations!
- You can click on a postcard and then add a typed message.
- You could also send a "tweet" on twitter the to NASA Astronauts ( @NASA_Astronauts )
