About Neil Armstrong
During the 1960s, the space race was at full throttle! Meet Neil Armstrong and his team of famous astronauts to find out what really happened in the race to land on the moon. Present a TV chat show to interview the astronauts, re-enact scenes from their early lives, conduct a fast-paced TV quiz show about the space race and perform some intergalactic music to enhance the exciting final-countdown moments before lift-off!
Includes four fantastic songs, four pages of cross-curricular ideas and extension work and a class performance script. Go on and get groovy with suggested dance choreography for the song I’m Gonna Be An Astronaut and play instruments along to a spacey soundscape with the Space Music backing track.
We’ve also made it easy to support your curriculum requirements by providing an additional song Great Explorers, which compares space explorer Neil Armstrong with land explorer Christopher Columbus! Check out our new History title Christopher Columbus for more great resources.
Neil Armstrong includes Words on Screen™ songs on its enhanced CD.
Neil Armstrong is now an award-winning title.
