The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume Six: Astronomy

The summer-long, science-filled, adventure-packed journey blasts out of this world to learn about the stars, planets, and more!

In The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume Six: Astronomy, the zip-lining science adventure blasts out of this world for Blaine and Tracey Sassafras – and we want to bring you all along for the ride!

Join the Sassafras Twins as they travel to out-of-this-world locales to learn about space.

Together, you will learn about the planets, the stars, and more as the twins zip around the globe. In the book, you will visit locations like:

  • The space station to learn about the planets->you don't want to miss the tech that makes that possible!
  • A Hawaiian observatory to learn about telescopes and galaxies.
  • And we even got to be part of an amazing Bollywood show!

We want you to enjoy learning about astronomy, too!

And, we know that through space traveling, code-breaking, and Bollywood dancing this living book will teach your students about the planets, stars, and more in a way that they’ll never forget!

We know this because thousands of readers have already told us so. Here is what one of our Sassy-Sci peeps had to say about our adventure:

Go on an adventure as you learn about space in The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume 6: Astronomy.

(Note - If you plan on using Sassafras Science as your main science program, we recommend that you choose either the activity guide and logbook combo or the lapbooking guide. Learn about the differences and similarities between the logbook and lapbook options.)
