How I Use It
When teaching about space I often used NASA pictures, videos and articles to help explain concepts. Typically, these were short videos that I used in succession with a whole group reading. Students are intrigued by the images they see and are interested in learning more. The articles are sometimes difficult to read.
My Take
NASA provides an abundance of amazing resources for teachers to utilize when teaching about space. The only problem is sifting through the enourmous website.
