Amazing Space – Space Explorations and Lessons

Amazing Space is a great website for teachers and students of astronomy. Amazing Space has a great collection of virtual tours and interactive lessons. Each tour and interactive lesson covers a different topic related to the study of the solar system. Some of the activities students can try are a “photo safari of the galaxy,” a “census of the galaxy,” and a “Hubble Telescope maintenance mission.”

Applications for Education
The educator resource page on Amazing Space is full of great ideas and lesson plans for teaching astronomy to students in elementary school, middle school, and high school. For each virtual tour and online simulation there are suggested lesson activities. The educator page includes a host of reproducible graphic organizers and reading materials.
