I CAN Be an Astronaut

What does it take to travel into space?
This month, we’ll be exploring our solar system and learning about how astronauts get ready for their journey.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, explore the special qualities of the planets in our solar system through fun crafts and activities. On Wednesdays and Fridays, find out what it takes to become an astronaut through story time and activities designed to get you ready for your journey to space.
