Homeschool Resource: Space Racers

Disclaimer: I received a product to review. All opinions are my own. 

Tbomb is a little obsessed with space, so I try to bring as much into our homeschool lessons as possible, so when I was given the opportunity to review Space Racers, I was quite excited.

SPACE RACERS® is an original animated TV series that provides young children with exposure to key aspects of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, curriculum. Produced in collaboration with NASA experts, the series follows a group of talented young spaceship cadets at the Stardust Bay Space Academy. Kids will travel with speedy Eagle, strong Hawk, smart Robyn, brave Starling and competitive Raven as they soar through the Solar System learning about the power of scientific investigation and observation, the wonders of space exploration and the importance of working as a team.

The Space Racers Educator’s Toolkit, developed in cooperation with WNET Education, includes a DVD with 13 animated episodes, 4 live-action segments, and a CD-ROM filled with corresponding Lesson Plans and Family Activities. These resources are ideal for kids in grades Pre-K through 3rd grade.

Space Racers is available in most of the country on public television, in over 25 countries, and is even now streaming on Netflix. 

Tbomb gets so excited when it is time to watch Space Racers, in fact- I have put several episodes on his tablet so that he can watch them when he wants. He loves their personalities and I love that they are teaching teamwork and space at the same time. They even learn about scientific investigation. 

Space Racers is now the cartoon I put on when Tbomb has friends over and it is time to calm down. Because of this, most of their moms have started streaming it for them. This is one of our favorite resources this year. He even asked me to make it an option in his popsicle stick activity jar (he chooses 3 activities a day).
