Space Graphing: UPDATED & REVISED!
by Tiny Space Adventures
A super fun way to practice graphing and counting skills as well as learn a little trivia about NASA's moon missions and animals in space!
Learn some cool NASA trivia like how many rovers, flags, golf balls & family photos are on the Moon today (I'll give you a hint...there are more than just NASA's Apollo rovers up there!) Also, find out about our little animal astronauts that have flown in space. Animals highlighted in this lesson include: dogs, cats, monkeys, frogs, rabbits and even baby squid.
7 super cute student worksheets are now all blackline copies for easy and clear copying.
