The National Park Service has a new Junior Ranger booklet co-designed in partnership with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The project is part of a multi-agency effort to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing on July 20, 2019. The Spaceflight Explorer Jr. Ranger book is available at participating national parks and through NASA.
Go to the NASA Website. Complete the activities while you learn about the Moon, space vehicles that will take humans to the Moon and to Mars, and national parks across the United States. The Spaceflight Explorer Jr. Ranger book is also a free, printable booklet with math puzzles, thought questions, spot the difference pictures, matching puzzles, scrambled words and anagrams. Take the pledge to become a Spaceflight Explorer Junior Ranger, make your own badge, and put your name on the certificate.
No special badges or patches have been created for use with this booklet. A "badge" has been printed on the inside back cover of the booklet for kids who access the booklet online to cut out and create their own reward for completing the activities.
