Monster Functions in Space Science I
In this solar magnetic field worksheet, students are given 2 equations and use them to find the magnetic field strength and the Bp and Bz for given conditions. they express their answer using scientific notation.
Integrating Space Science-Our Changing Universe
In this universe learning exercise, learners read about the big bang theory and the evolution of the stars from the elements. Students answer four critical thinking questions about the beginnings of our universe.
GED Vocabulary: Earth and Space Science
In this earth and space science worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle given seven clues and seven terms about earthquakes, the solar system, and convection currents.
People of the Cassini Team
Pupils discuss the job qualifications of a team member for a space mission. For this space science lesson, students select a mentor from the Cassini team members and explain the reason for their selection. They assess the importance of space missions to other planets.
Pupils watch programs from a series titled "Planetary Landers". As a class, they view a poster of various vehicles that have made their way into space. In groups, they brainstorm the characteristics that should be included when designing a vehicle of this sort. They are introduced to new vocabulary and answer discussion questions to end the lesson.
Students measure shadows and explore the altitude of the sun. In this sun lesson students will graph the length of shadows and solar altitude against time.
Mississippi’s Contribution to Space Exploration
Eighth graders engage in a class discussion while going through a PowerPoint on Mississippi's contribution to space exploration. In this Space science lesson plan, the students will also participate in Brain Pop quizzes where they will answer questions in small groups over historical astronomers and the International Space Station. The class will end with two questions being ask as a closure to the instructional activity.
Are There Other Neighborhoods Like Our Own?
Pupils investigate the possibility of life existing on other planets. They conduct research using a variety of resources. The lesson includes an overview that is used for classroom discussion practices. They tell the teacher how to find life on another planet.
The Great Hubble
Middle schoolers explain how Hubble telescope captures images from space. In this space science lesson, students use the internet to view space photos. They debate on an issue raised by the teacher.
Father of Satellite Meteorology
High schoolers investigate this lesson plan that features Dr. Verner Suomi, telling the story of why he became known as the Father of Satellite Meteorology. The activities include hands-on learning about satellites, applying knowledge of satellite imagery, and understanding more about occupational jargon.
