Write the short date in your home learning book. 20.05.20
Complete the questions on the link below.
Over this half term you have learnt all about the history of space flight.
You have learnt about animals being sent to space before humans. You have also learnt about three amazing astronauts – Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake. Can you remember what each of them were famous for?
Today you are going to be placing all of the events you have learnt about on a timeline. Remember a timeline is a line that represents a period of time in history. The events on a timeline have to be placed in chronological order. This means they need to be in the order of which they happened – so you would place the event with the earliest date first all the way up to the last event with the most recent date.
Turn your home learning book so it is horizontal. Can you write the title ‘History of space flight’ at the top of the page.
In the middle of the page can you draw a horizontal line. This will be your timeline. You can use any colour you like.
Can you write these events in chronological order on the timeline. Remember what chronological means. Look carefully at the dates at the side of each event. Read them all first before you begin to write them on the timeline. Which one would come first?
Neil Armstrong lands on the moon, 1969
Albert the monkey is sent to space, 1949
Flies are sent to space, 1947
Yuri Gagarin is the first man in space, 1961
Tim Peake is the first British astronaut in space, 2015
Once you have ordered these events, we are going to compare Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong. Remember when we compare we look at what is the same and what is different.
Watch the videos below to remind yourselves about each astronaut. Once you have done that, can you think of two things that are the same between Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong? Then can you think of two things that are different? Share your answers with us in the comments box below.
A story to end with…
