This very simple worksheet includes a reading and chart about key moments in America and the Soviet Union's Space Race.
After an introduction that describes the beginning of the Space Race, your students can see how the Soviets took an early lead through its satellites before the US caught up. It concludes with 5 short questions students can answer from the readings.
This makes for a great homework assignment for younger students, ELLs, or special education students to help understand the Space Race.
