AHG Badge Help – Living & Working in Space #2

Are you ready to blast off into some summer fun?  Here is a great rocket snack we made to with a group of Tenderhearts earning the Living & Working in Space merit badge. 

We made this snack using a Little Debbie Swiss Roll, one strawberry (that has been washed and the stem removed), and 3 segments of a clementine orange.  And it is held together with toothpicks.

Requirement #2 of the Living and Working in Space Merit Badge, has the Tenderhearts learn about the different parts of the space shuttle.  Since NASA is no longer using space shuttles and we currently rely on Russia to transport our astronauts to the International Space Station, I believe that a model of the Soyuz Spacecraft would be more relevant to our times.

Here is a link to the NASA website that has an article about the Soyuz Spacecraft.

NOTE: The requirements have been simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the American Heritage Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
