Patrons learn about the basic parts of a satellite by crafting their own model using found materials. Turn this into a "Take & Make" activity by providing bags with materials (small boxes, sponges, craft sticks, screws) and a printed diagram of a satellite with the basic parts labeled.
|Hints for uses in your library||"Take & Make" tip: include pictures of a finished craft satellite so kids can see some examples.|
