Every astronaut needs a spacesuit to keep them safe. With digital and multimedia resources provided, students will research the types of spacesuits astronauts need, and the features they include, then they will design their own suit. If resources are available, encourage children to use and discover a range of media to create their suit – pens, pencils, paint, crafts, foil, collage. Imagination is key!
