Going to Mars!

Rappy Goes to Mars by Dan Gutman (Harper)

Action Song: I’m A Little Rocket

I’m a little rocket, (Raise arms above head with fingertips touching.)

Pointing to the stars

Now I’m getting fueled up (Wiggle your hips.)

To head to Mars (One hand on hip, the other pointing to sky)


When it’s time to board me

Then I’ll say (Slowly bend knees and crouch down)

Blast off! Zoom! We’re on our way! (Jump up and shout!)


Life on Mars Jon Agee (Dial Books for Young Readers)

Space Fingerplay:

Climb aboard the spaceship,

We’re going to go to Mars,

Hurry and get ready

We’re going to go so far!

Put on your helmet, and buckle up real tight,

Cause here comes the countdown

So count with all your might!
