Day 332 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids:  Fun, Easy & Do-able Daily Activities for Kids!

November 28th is RED PLANET DAY, commemorating the launch of the Spacecraft Mariner 4 on November 28, 1964. Its 228-day mission brought the spacecraft within 6,118 miles of Mars on July 14, 1965, sending us back the first close-up photos of the red planet…

Red Planet Day couldn’t come at a better time since Curiosity- The Mars Rover launched just 2 days ago, on November 26th, 2011 as part of NASA’S MARS EXPLORATION PROGRAM

Today is a perfect day to get your kids and grandkids excited about space travel and space exploration… especially concentrating on the adventure to The Red Planet.  (You may want to let your kids in on the red explanation to The Red Planet.)
