Astronauts experimented with a variety of toys on the International Space Station to help students understand microgravity. In this activity, students write about how a certain toy behaves on Earth; then they predict how that same toy will behave in the microgravity environment of space. The students can watch footage from space showing astronauts using the toys to determine if the predictions are correct.
