I used this in my 6th grade science class to have the students do a little research on the earlier days of the space race and how the USSR/Russia was leading until the USA made it to the moon.
20 questions on the early years of the space race
Sputnik 1 & 2
First dog in space
The founding of NASA
John F Kennedy's speech about going to the moon
The Apollo program
The next giant leap to Mars
The link to the NASA page would not work on my schools google chromebooks on 5/12/16, so be aware.
Students should also have headphones to watch the videos.
Over times links online change, so please inform me if any links are broken.
