Space Science:Wherever You Go, There You Are

Learners explore navigation principles by observing, measuring, and interpreting data to determine locations. Using a compass, compass rose, and a transit, they plot courses and discover the workings of the Global Positioning System (GPS). In groups, students complete worksheets involving math geometry, measurement, number operations, and data analysis skills.

I'm a Special Education teacher that collaborates with science most of the day. I've found lots of hands on and wonderful ideas for teaching science that I can use incorporating all of our students. There are so many that I was able to use all year long last year and still finding more this year. Love this site...
