This Who Won the Space Race? video also includes:
Modern animation presents an overview of the history of space exploration. Beginning with Sputnik in 1957, the international space race was on. Eventually, space exploration became, not a competition, but rather a collaboration. Also, products designed for space have led to commonly used household products! Little bits of humor are present in the animation if you are really observing, and viewers will glean plenty from this presentation. It can be used in a history class when focusing on the 1960s, or in your space unit. Make sure to check out the additional Dig Deeper resources for even more material!
