How I Use It
My class constructs satellites out of recycled material to culminate our space unit. There are informational articles as well as "how to" directions regarding all sorts of satellites. Students use the NASA site to research the satellites they construct and present their findings to the class along with their creations. They may make a PowerPoint or write an essay.
My Take
There is so much information here that it could be time-consuming to figure out which sections to use in your classroom. It would be easier if it were categorized by grade-levels. All in all, though, it is worth your time! There is something for everyone.
