Published in 1986, Science Air and Space makes a great reference guide to see how far space exploration has come. Edited and compiled by Leah Hughes, this book is based on Jane Hodges‘, Aviation and Space. This activity guide has folder game activities to introduce science to preschool students.
Science Air and Space: Folder Games for the Classroom has basic scientific concepts and hands-on activities. Science Air and Space set out to build a strong foundation of scientific principles in young children. In 1986, Hughes, a science teacher, wrote about women in space, the environment, and aviation.
Over the past 35 years, we have seen tremendous advances in technology, but Science Air and Space offers historical insight. Science, in the 1980s, was not an integral part of preschool learning, and Hughes wrote this book to bring it to the forefront. We now possess a much larger awareness of space and the environment.
Fun fact: the preface was written by retired NASA Space Shuttle Pilot Colonel Gregory.
