Getting Comfortable Teaching with Space
Early Childhood NASA lesson plans and activities applied to STEM topics. Excite and involve your youngest students using rocket alphabet, rocket math, rocket ordering sequence, rocket numbering, and rocket sizing activities. Make the sky your classroom with “indoor” paper kites, helicopters, and play aeronautical board games. Explore rockets by constructing and launching small “indoor” paper rockets. Discover “What is a Robot?” by building with craft sticks and brass fasteners. Learn the Engineering Design Process and create a Mars Lander. See the world without a passport using NASA images of the Earth from space with textbook maps and pictures. Model the solar system using colored pony beads and yarn to represent the Sun and planets.
