KS1 – Lesson 3 Main 2: The view from the rocket window

Time: 15 mins+

Group size: Whole Class

Tag words: launch control, rocket, Console, Computer, buttons, switches, windows, paper, pens, display

Cover your whole classroom in sugar paper (tables and display boards)

Explain to the class they are going to draw the views from the rocket’s windows as if the classroom is the rocket and they are looking out into space. Give out pens and allocate groups to different parts of the sugar-paper-covered room.

Photograph and video the creation process with an iPad. A small team of pupils could collect footage for a later documentary on the project.
