This week we are reading, One Giant Leap by Robert Burleigh. It’s an engaging, beautifully painted illustrated book. The book is written in a way that you feel the emotions the astronauts must have felt – so different from any other space book we’ve read.
For our snack this week to go along with the book, to celebrate, we’re having the special edition Marshmellow Moon Oreos!
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
Have you seen these awesome special edition Marshmellow Moon Oreos at the store? On the cookies, they have either a picture of the moon, a space shuttle, or Neil Armstrong holding the American flag. Such a fun tribute to an important time in history.
If you are reading this book again next year and the Oreos are no longer available, Moon Pie’s would be an awesome snack substitute to go along with the book!
While your students are enjoying their moon snacks, I made a free printable for them to work on. They get to write and draw about if they landed on the moon.
You can download the free printable from my Teachers Pay Teachers store below.

See you next time!
