Book Activities for Stellarphant by James Foley
This 2022 CBCA Notable Children's Picture Book is a clever story about an elephant who wants to be an astronaut. A play on equal rights and the opportunity to achieve your goals. She eventually realises that by meeting all the requirements needed to be an astronaut she is capable of doing it herself with no support from the space agency.
The team at Learn From Play have made 4 activities for this book which are drawing a fun elephant astronaut in a space ship, arranging Stella's achievements in order of how she achieved her goal to become an astronaut, an activity to match each space suit to the specific animal for which it was designed and a timeline on when animals were sent to space.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
