Title: Animals in Space
Description: Animals have been an integral part of the human race to space. Before astronauts like John Glenn and Neil Armstrong were able to go into space, different animals were sent on missions for scientists to determine whether or not space travel was safe. In this lesson, students will learn which animals were used to investigate the effects of the space environment on living organisms. They will also learn how animals benefited scientists in other ways, such as by testing out the effectiveness of safety equipment.
