Valentina Tereshkova

The important thing about Valentina Tereshkova

The important thing about Valentina Tereshkova is that she was the first women to go to space! Yes, I know what you are saying in your head, “I thought that someone else was the first women to go to space”. No she was the first to go! Did you know that she traveled the earth 45-48 times. She did not keep track but she thinks that she did go that long.  She liked parachute jumping at the early age.  But the important thing is that Valentina Tereshkova is the she is the first woman to go to space

  1. Mia,
    One of the best things about your explorer post is, that you told about what other people might think, but you also told about the truth about what the first woman in space really was. I think Valentina Tereshkova sounds like an awesome astronaut!

  3. Dear Mia,
    Hi Mia! I loved your post. I also think the most important things about Valentina Tarshova is that she was the first women to go into space. I also like how you said “Yes I know what you are saying in your head, I thought someone else was the first women to go into space.” That sentence mad me laugh really hard.
    Love Meera

    WOW! You were right! I didn’t think that Valentina was the first woman to go to space. I knew Neil Armstrong was the first man, but I didn’t know about woman. I find space very interesting because space goes on and on. However, I find it a big deal because she was the FIRST. If anyones the first at anything it’s cool. Especially when they are the first to go into a thing that people do everywhere. I think that Valentina is very important part of our life.
