Make sure your students know they can set their sights sky high – all the way to space!
From the creator:
“Students took funny face pictures that were put in the astronaut cut out shapes. We used a Cricut to cut the shape.
Letters were cut out of silver glitter paper using the Cricut too.
Boarder was fabric tool gathered in bunched using small clear rubberbands. Boarder was stapled around the fabric.
Fabric background was a galaxy print 3 yards stapled to the board.
The rocket was a birthday party decoration purchased from an online retailer.
The classroom staff took their funny picture and put it in the rocket.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- Ask students to write down their biggest goal for the quarter/month and have them attach that goal next to their astronaut to see it every day.
- Use the board as a jumping goff point to have students write an ordered list of steps they think it would take to truly get to space.
- Have students write a creative story about the kid astronauts in the pictures.

Training for Space
- Cover your board with galaxy designed fabric.
- Add your black border around the edges.
- Next, cut out and add your title to the left side of the board.
- Put up your rocket ship to the right of the bulletin board and use colored tissue paper at the bottom to resemble flames shooting out from the bottom of the rocket.
- Finally, take pictures of each student in your class and print them photo paper.
- Using a circle scrapbook puncher, cut out only the child’s face and glue onto the astronaut cut outs.
- Add to your board and enjoy!
Using the bulletin board for a jumping off point to discuss science concepts, data concepts in math, or even creative writing to strengthen vocabulary and writing skills, you’ll be ready to have fun and incorporate your learning environment at the same time!
