Astronaut Academy Activity Pack [PDF]
Includes worksheets to create original characters, unique settings and a short comic.
Using the outer space school of Astronaut Academy as a jumping off point, kids design their own school and the students who attend it. Whether it’s underground, in the clouds, underwater, another dimension, or simply on Earth, it’s all up to their imaginations! The activity kit encourages kids to think about relationships between main characters and their antagonists as the building blocks for their own stories. The pack also includes some cartooning tips and a fill-in 1 page comic.
