Space Race Timeline and Newspaper Project Lesson

This is a fantastic, visually-engaging lesson on America and the Soviet Union's Space Race during the Cold War! It includes 11 one-page readings on key events in the space race that students use to create newspaper pages. Students then present their newspapers and create timelines to see how the Soviets and Americans progressed.

Everything you need for this student-centered lesson is included: easy to follow directions, a great newspaper template, all the readings, samples, and an answer key!

The events include: Sputnik's launch, Laika the Dog's trip to space, voyages of John Glenn, Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong, the Voyager, Hubble Telescope, and more!

This can be differentiated in your classes by having students work in pairs, groups, or individually. I love it because it captures the artists, writers, and visual learners all in one lesson!

This download also includes both printable and Google Drive versions of the activity! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, you can use the provided link to bring this resource into Google Classroom!

The editable Google Drive version features a "drag and drop" timeline of events and links to dozens of online sources for students to read about the events of the Space Race!
