In the Classroom

Use this site to engage students in learning about space exploration and the universe beyond planet Earth. Share images on your interactive whiteboard or have students explore on their own on their mobile devices. Ask students to use one image as the starting point for a research project based upon your curriculum. Encourage students to keep notes using Google Documents or Microsoft Word. Have students use a photo collage creation tool such as PhotoCollage, reviewed here, to combine images with common characteristics or ask them to use ThingLink, reviewed here, to annotate images to discuss features including the location of the image, add links to additional information, and more. As an extension activity, ask students or groups of students to create digital books using Book Creator, reviewed here, about their research. For example, have groups create books about stars, planets, or the solar system that include images, videos, and student research.
