Product Description
Your students will love this scavenger hunt activity - locating and collecting items with a connection to the history of Space Exploration (such as a feather, a shoe insole, or a picture of a monkey). Once gathered, students will research to determine what that connection is or why the object is significant to the time period. A very fun, hands-on learning lab!
