The Space Place I loved it and wanted to explore even more.
where I played Ozone Trap-n-Zap,
where I learned how to build my own spacecraft.
And these are just five of the dozens and dozens of places to Explore, Do and Play within The Space Place.
I also stopped into the Parents & Educators tab where there were....
lots of important places to support our learners including,
One place I loved where the PDF's of Space Make-and-Do Activities that are available. These would be easy to laminate and have available to our learners in the library and classroom...or even to send home.NASA Space Place Facebook page.
Nonfiction Notes....Spotlight on Space that I read earlier in the month on the School Library Journal website.

I love that NASA, Capstone, School Library Journal and other publishers and places help put these into their hands and into our libraries, classrooms and homes.
They are out of this world!
