They identify natural and artificial satellites, explore how satellites are put into orbit, and study the function of a space probe. Students create a timeline of space missions, including missions to the moon.

I am a special eduction teacher at a High School in Texas. I teach 45 subjects in 7 periods. Without Lesson Planet, I would drown just in the preparation. Thanks Lesson Planet.
