#AceBreakingNews – Not-So-Spooky Space Resources Make Preschool Learning Fun
This Halloween night, future explorers will take to the sidewalks on trick-or-treat adventures and NASA and its partners are making it easier for them to “try on” identities as space adventurers and pioneers.
Curiosity and the thrill of discovery can spark a lifelong love of exploration in even the youngest children.
Children learn about the world around them through play and new experiences. By nurturing their innate inquisitiveness and imagination, the adults in their lives can help them engage in science before age 5, developing a strong foundation to build upon as they enter the K-12 years.
A treat for parents and little pumpkins alike, the Noggin learning app by Nick Jr. brings NASA-collaborated inspirational resources to preschool age children. NASA and Noggin began working together in 2020 to highlight space careers and concepts through live interactions, videos, games, and more. A live interaction with astronauts aboard the International Space Station featured questions provided by preschools across the country, and the Rhymes Through Times episode “My Best” introduces NASA legends Katherine Johnson and Guion Bluford, Jr. while demonstrating the power of math in space exploration.
As nights grow longer and spooky season activities transpire beneath the stars and moonlight, October is a great time to launch a love of space science for little ones. Here are some fun activities families can do together to “space out” this Halloween!
- Carve or color an astronomically cool pumpkin with NASA-themed pumpkin stencils. Need more inspiration? Get inspired to create a Halloween pumpkin like a NASA engineer.
- Looking for an out-of-this-world costume? Make a planet mask.
- See some unearthly sights within our own galaxy.
- Say “goodnight” to the Moon during Oct. 25th’s new Moon with NASA astronaut Thomas Marshburn’s reading of “Goodnight Moon” aboard the International Space Station. Hosted by Crayola Education in collaboration with NASA and HarperKids, this Read Along, Draw Along™ event earlier this year marked the 75th anniversary of the beloved children’s book.
- While waiting for the arrival of the Great Pumpkin, learn about life in the universe with “Snoopy in Space,” a STEM-based curriculum developed by Peanuts Worldwide and NASA. Keep an eye out for Snoopy sightings during the upcoming Artemis I mission, too, because Snoopy himself will fly to the Moon as the zero-gravity indicatoraboard the uncrewed Orion capsule.
- Visit Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Celebrate Halloween with NASApage for more fun ideas.
The agency also offers safe online playgrounds that preschoolers can explore with their grown-ups. NASA Kids Club encourages children to learn about NASA and its missions through inspirational games and activities, a gallery of fascinating space imagery, and more. NASA Space Place offers fun games and engaging activities, videos, and stories, including materials in English and Spanish.
