Introducing Children to Space, the Lincoln Plan. A Space Handbook for Teachers Grades K through 6.
Watkins, Steven N.
This handbook for space science was developed for use by elementary school teachers of grades K-6. The instructional plan of this guide presents activities for students of various maturity levels--five through eleven years. Teachers are encouraged to use the materials to meet the needs of individuals in the class. Most of the activities included were successfully pretested. All of them are correlated with an aerospace "bookshelf" composed of books and instructional materials. For each activity presented, suggestions are made as to how the material can be integrated with other subject matter areas such as language arts, social studies, and art. A bibliography of instructional materials and addresses of material publishers are included. (BC)
