An out-of-this-world imagination will help your students write and illustrate a space adventure.
Have students research information from several sources about the first walk in space and interview family members or neighbors who may remember this walk, and find out their reactions to it. Provide a variety of resources for this investigation and access to the Internet. Specific web sites can be recommended for students to visit.
Use Crayola® Metallic Crayons, Erasable Colored Pencils, and/or Gel Markers on dark paper to create a picture of an early or super-modern space vehicle. Include a window view of the inside of the vehicle showing the student (as a person or alien) traveling through space. Add details to the surrounding space, including shooting stars, planets, satellites, flying debris, and other space vehicles.
With metallic colored pencils on white paper, students write about what is seen on the adventure using whole sentences.
Cut sentences into strips with Crayola Scissors. Arrange the sentences into paragraph groups that tell about one part of the trip. Leave out or rewrite any sentences that don't fit well into a paragraph format.
Rewrite the story in metallic colors, making each group of sentences a different color. Add a cool metallic border and display with the space vehicle drawing.
Provide time in the school day's schedule for students to share their space stories with classmates.
