(Children pretend that they are exploring outer space in a rocket ship. For an added effect you can paint or
draw planets and stars and put them around the room and the children can move around the room to look
for them. You can find pictures of the planets on the internet.)
We’re getting into a rocket ship,
To go to outer space,
When we count down we will all blast off,
No need to be afraid.
(crouch down, then blast off)
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 let’s go,
We’re blasting off through the atmosphere,
Can you see the earth down below?
We zoom past planets and asteroids,
Comets and shooting stars, too,
The earth looks so small like a tiny ball,
It’s really quite a view.
There’s the moon with its funny face,
The stars look so big from up here,
We’ll stay far away from the closest star,
‘Cause the sun is too hot to go near.
Floating around in our rocket ship,
Weightlessness is so cool!
But now its time to return back home,
It’s time to go to school.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 we’ve touched down,
We’ll climb on out of our rocket ship,
‘Cause now we’re on the ground.
