This card-based activity allows students to discover the sequence of important events in the history of space exploration.
Space exploration has come a long way. Now it’s possible to be a space tourist and there is a permanent crew of researchers on the International Space Station. But how did we get to where we are now?
Student will need to consider the progression of technological advances to be able to match up important historical events with their corresponding dates.
This activity can be done alone, in pairs or in groups. Different types of games can be played depending on how you copy and print the event and date cards.
To play matching games, photocopy the cards single sided to create separate event and date cards. To play a chronological history game, photocopy the cards double-sided with corresponding dates and events on each card. (Use heavy card stock so you can't see through the card to the answer!)
