Rocket race to Mars
By: GSLC Posted On: 2019-12-21

Materials needed:
A large piece of plain paper about 36” x 36”, Crayons or markers,
Paper for folding airplanes, Blindfold
Lay the large piece of paper on the ground. This paper represents a space map of the universe.
With a heavy red crayon or marker draw a solid colored circle about 3 inches in diameter on the
space map. This red circle will be Mars. Next, draw several other planets on the paper using
different colors. Each player gets to make a space ship (a paper airplane) using the other paper.
When it is a player's turn, blindfold him, spin him around before he flies (throws) his ship to land
it on Mars. Make sure each ship has the player's name on it so you can tell who is the closest.
The winner is the one with the ship closest to Mars.
