Using MY NASA DATA in the Elementary Classroom-
The collection of My NASA Data K-2 and 3-5 lesson plans is intended to provide the elementary educator with a variety of specific examples of how NASA Earth Science Satellite data can be integrated into their science curriculum. Take a few moments to look over the elementary lessons provided to see how other teachers have used authentic satellite data as a resource to bring real-world science experiences to their students. We invite you to use them as is or to create your own lesson from the rich data resource that the Live Access Server (LAS) provides. If you create your own lesson, please consider sharing it with other educators through the online lesson link provided.
You have been selected by the Random House National Publication Company to assist NASA in the publication of a children’s book about satellites. Your design and content should be developed for teachers or parents to use with an audience of students in K-2nd grade. Once complete your book will be evaluated and reviewed according to the checklist located on the evaluation page. You may chose to accept this assignment on your own or you may want to work within a design team to complete the task.
Think Scientifically is a three-book series for elementary school teachers that integrates math, science and reading instruction. Each storybook focuses on a key science theme and includes a hands-on science lesson, math and language arts activities, and other educational resources that can be easily utilized in the classroom. The books are based on national standards and were written by teachers.
With increasing pressure on schools to focus on math and reading, science often gets left behind. The Think Scientifically book series provides teachers with a way to easily incorporate all three subjects!
