Space Station Explorers

April is Global Astronomy Month, making it the perfect time for educators to draw on lesson plans from Space Station Explorers. In collaboration with several partner organizations, including the International Space Station (ISS) National Lab, Space Station Explorers collects the best space-based activities from across the web. Content can be sorted by grade, subject, and learning environment (the various "learn at home" activities are perfect for caregivers and virtual classrooms). Readers can also use the search bar to find a specific subject matter (e.g., a search for "gravity" reveals five lesson options including "Ants in Space" and "Invisible Forces"). The lesson plans vary greatly, both in topic and design. For example, educators can check out the "Plants in Space" curriculum, an in-depth exploration of plant systems divided between multiple chapters. Alternatively, educators looking for a shorter option may enjoy the "Bag of Bones" activity, an individual lesson plan that combines life sciences, snacks, and space exploration.
