The first three of these are rhyming riddles, with the words ‘space shuttle’ completing the rhyme of the third one.
The fourth asks your kids What Am I? To use that one, read the first clue to your children and ask them to guess the answer.
As the clue says that it’s something that goes up in the air but which isn’t a balloon, they might guess that it’s a bird, airplane, kite, drone or one of many other things.
If they don’t work out that it’s a space shuttle, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again. Keep going until they either realize that space shuttle is the answer or they run out of clues.
