In Class 2 we found out all about astronaut skills. We learn that astronauts need to be very fit and healthy - they have to do lots of exercise. We also learnt that they need good dexterity - to be good with their hands.
Testing our Astronaut skills
To see if we would make good astronauts we carried out some tests. To test our dexterity we tried to do different things - firstly without gloves and then wearing gloves - as if we were wearing space gloves.
We cut a tomato into quarters using a knife and fork and then tried to build a 15 piece Lego tower. We timed the activities and found out it took longer to do things when wearing gloves.
