Write a Story Activity

Facts are something that actually occurred. Fiction is something we create using our imagination. Sometimes authors use facts from history and then use their imagination to create a story based on those facts.

Choose one of the astronauts from this website. First, research the astronaut using this website, other websites, and books. Use the facts you find and then use your imagination to create a short story about the astronaut’s time in space. Write your story using two colored pencils. Use one color when writing down facts that actually occurred. Use the other color for the parts of the story that you create. One sentence may have two different colors.
