Mission: Astronauts need brains AND brawn! Using your coordination, endurance and quick thinking, perform five jumping jacks, with a star-jump finish, while calling out the liftoff sequence: "5,4,3,2, 1, liftoff!". Repeat it again with one catch –call out the liftoff countdown in another language!  Film it, or snap a picture, and tag it on social media with #trainlikeanastronaut.

Set-up: Using the internet, a book or by asking a friend or family member, learn to say  "5,4,3,2,1, liftoff” in a language other than your own. Practice saying it a few times. Practice your jumping jacks and when completing the “lift-off jump”extend your arms and legs to form the shape of a star in the air. Put it all together and show us what you’ve got!
