Our first Curiosity Challenge is all about space!
Adults - before your children start this challenge, please take a look at the Grown-Ups Guide which provides a summary of the activities, what the children will need and the curriculum links. We'd also recommend having a look at Activity 4 as this explains the science behind each activity which may help you support younger children if needed.
Mission Space Activities
Monday to Wednesday
Our Mission Space activities are designed to be completed over three days, however they can all be done in one go if we've sparked your curiosity! Make sure you document your progress with drawings, photos, films, scrapbooks, etc and share them with us.
Now that children have completed the three activities, we'd love to see their photos, films, drawings etc so that we can see how they got on with each activity. Use the links below to follow us, tag and share your posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Use this final activity to evaluate your children's progress - what worked well, what could you have done differently etc. Evaluation is a really important part of being a great scientist. Scientists always document their work and record their findings. By doing this they can try different things to see what works and just as importantly, discover what doesn't work!
For this activity, you may like to download, print and make this planisphere. We can use a planisphere to display the visible stars for any time and date, helping us to find and recognise stars and constellations.
