Your scientists are employed by NASA! They have to evaluate five potential sites around the world and decide which location would serve the scientists best. There are comprehensive lesson plans for this electronic field trip, and your middle schoolers will enjoy sitting on a different team and exploring multiple roles. (There are five teams: the atmospheric seeing team, cultural and environmental setting team, meteorology and climate team, travel team, and telescope design team.)

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
