The recent trip made to the Space Station by Discovery, late February 2011, garnered quite a bit of attention from the public. Interest in space travel still fascinates many. If you will be discussing space, there’s a great resource available from Verizon Thinkfinity. You will find lesson plans for k-12, take a virtual moon trip or work on vocabulary that is “out of this world”.
Utilize the FCIT site for photographs of space craft. Students can use these photos in presentation software such as Keynote, PowerPoint, or Google Presentation.
