Url: https://www-spof.gsfc.nasa.gov/stargaze/Steacher.htm
Publisher: Goddard Space Flight Center
Description: The materials presented here use space and spaceflight to introduce students to two areas of the core science curriculum: the motion of the Earth in space, and Newtonian mechanics. Teachers may use these lesson plans and problem sets as a guide to a sequential course, or as a source for student projects. Topics which are covered include astronomy, mechanics, solar physics, and spaceflight. A mathematics refresher and assessment of how this material conforms to the National Science Education Standards are also provided.
