We learnt about how eating food is very different when you are in space. We watched a video of Tim Peake showing how he prepared food in the space station. We learnt that food in often dehydrated (the water is removed) so that it is lighter. We also learnt that food has to be eaten from special sealed containers or bags so it doesn't float away when there is no gravity. This would make a big mess and could also be dangerous if crumbs or liquid got into the equipment.
We had a go at making our own space dessert by rehydrating some powdered dessert and then ate it from our special space packaging. We talked about the way that water would have to be carefully added to the packet of food using a special machine and tubing.
The children loved their space dessert and were having some great conversations about how different life would be living on the space station.
