A Week for Space

by: Diane Comstock

Space Week focuses on concepts that enable students to make concrete observations in the early grades (K—2) and move to concepts that help students develop their internet research and writing skills in middle and upper grades (Grades 3—5), and culminates with the development of science investigation design skills (Grade 6). To help launch your students’ interest in space science, this article presents inquiry-based space lessons, which are aligned with the National Science Education Standards.
