An astronaut is on the International Space Station. She likes to cook. She makes her own cooking show. The show is in space.

There is a video of her cooking show. On it, she cooks with a couple of ingredients. She cooks chicken, mushrooms, brown rice, and peas. The food is in food pouches. She heats the food pouches. She says that scissors are very important in the space kitchen. She uses them to open the food pouches.

She mixes the food together. She eats it. She says that her food is good.

Difficult words: ingredients (the things that go in food), food pouch (a special bag to keep food inside in space).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you think it is easy to cook in space?
