I was looking for interesting facts about what astronauts do as their job in space. This was not it. Have you thought about designing an inference lesson (like your snowy day inference unit) showing items such as capri sun, baby diaper, etc. products that we use every day that came about as a results of astronauts living in space? Have you heard about the film canister rocket powered by an Alka seltzer tablet? It is shot out of a rocket made from a toilet paper roll. Please consider adding more to this unit. I love your work and am one of your biggest fans.

On  March 4, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi! I was wondering what books you use when teaching this unit?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 9, 2013Babbling Abby answered:
I would recommend googling "Astronaut books for kids" or check out this listing on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=astronaut+books+for+kids.

Here's my post about astronauts on my blog: http://theinspiredapple.blogspot.com/2011/04/astronauts-abound-space-activities-for.html

Here's my post about my moon unit: http://theinspiredapple.blogspot.com/2011/05/over-moon-for-you.html
On  July 27, 2012Elementary School Rocks (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Abby! I purchased your astronaut unit but its not showing up in my purchases?? I received a receipt from paypal that payment went through but have not gotten the download. Is it because the site is acting a little funky?? Thanks so much : ) love your blog very inspiring! : )
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 29, 2012Babbling Abby answered:
Hmmmm, it could totally be because the site is acting crazy - have you been able to get it yet? Keep me posted and if it still doesn't show up, definitely contact TpT directly. Thanks so much for the positive feedback :) I truly appreciate it!!!

On  April 8, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I love your items. I saw on your blog you had your insect lesson plan. I am looking for a better way to do my lesson plans. Can you send me a copy that I can manipulate or can I buy it?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 9, 2012Babbling Abby answered:
Hmmm, I don't have an insect unit. Maybe you're thinking of Deanna Jump?
n/a
On  October 14, 2011,  Buyer asked:
I have already downloaded the packet, but I have a BIG question.
Do you have the recipe to the Astronaut ice cream??? The very first thing
in the packet asks us to compare astronaut ice cream to regular ice cream, but
I looked throughout the entire packet and there is nothing about how to make or
where to buy Astronaut ice cream.
Please let me know asap.
Thanks so much!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 15, 2011Babbling Abby answered:
Astronaut ice cream is actually "freeze dried" ice cream and can be purchased at museum centers or online retailers :)

On  May 3, 2011,  Buyer asked:
Hi,
I purchased your Astronaut Activities packet and several of the pages don't have wording. I'm not sure if it's my computer, but I would assume it wouldn't be because it's a PDF file. I purchased it on my home computer and I'll see if I can download it all on my school computer. If not, what do I do?
Thanks,
Tawna Perkins

So sorry about your troubles. Hopefully, I can help! If you are a Mac user, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader X. If doing that doesn't work, try these options: - If you're a Mac user, switch browsers (i.e. if you're currently opening in Firefox, try opening in Internet Explorer or Safari) - Make sure you check Adobe under "open with" to verify that that Adobe is the program you're using to open the document - Try opening the document from an entirely different computer (open directly from TpT) Please let me know if any of these option help! Thanks again for your purchase and have a great day!
