Web Site of the Week: NASA Instructional Units and Lesson Plans
Created by the TeacherLink initiative at the Utah State University College of Education, this site provides direct access to NASA instructional units and lesson plans. Visitors will note that there are over 40 different resources here, listed alphabetically. The resources are designed for students from kindergarten to college, and they include titles such as
“Amusement Park Physics with a NASA Twist” and “Rockets Educator Guide.” Another notable item here is the “Packing Up For the Moon” human exploration project, which was created to help young people learn about lunar plant growth. It’s a site that teachers will want to bookmark for future reference and share with their friends. [KMG]
