Mission to Mars

On a school trip to NASA, you and your classmates are accidentally sent on a mission to Mars. Over the 300-day journey, you have to guide the shuttle on its course, repair damage from a meteorite and learn how to survive in zero gravity. Will you ever make it back home?


In this Experience, your class will learn about:

  • Human space travel (NASA, Neil Armstrong, Valentina Tereshkova, surviving on a shuttle)
  • Differences in gravity on Earth, Mars and in space
  • Moons orbiting their planets
  • Things we find in space (meteorites, space rubble)

Resources for each Experience include:

  • For EYFS, Actions Storyboard, Song Sheet and Script
  • For Key Stages 1 & 2, Storyboard, Quiz, Reading Comprehension, Writing Opportunities and Script
