Housel, David C.; Housel, Doreen K. M.
This guide contains 95 activities dealing with various aerospace/aviation education concepts. The activities are presented in units for kindergarten through sixth grade organized around a central theme at each grade level. The themes follow a sequence from grade to grade. Beginning with the introduction of basic inquiry process skills in kindergarten, the guide moves through progressively more complex activities dealing with theory of flight, flight in the atmosphere, the earth from space, the exploration of the solar system, and culminates at the sixth-grade level, with activities on futurism and living in space. Each activity includes information on the subject area, grade level, group size, time required, teaching strategy, type of activity, concept(s) fostered, and skills fostered. Each activity also contains objective(s), materials needed, teacher background information, instructional strategies, suggested extension activities, and number(s) corresponding to resources found in an appendix. These resources (numbered from 1-298) include films, student books, and other materials organized by topic area, as well as commercial textbooks. Other appendices contain addresses of publishers and government/non-government agencies, glossary, and an appendix of additional resources. The guide's conceptual framework and other general information are included in an introduction. (JN)
