International Space Station: 6-8 Hands-on Science and Math Lesson Plans.
These lesson plans, designed for grades 6-8, have been developed to provide a guide to hands-on experience in science and math. They focus on an International Space Station and are designed for use with students working in groups. The three lesson plans highlighting the importance of the scientific method are: (1) International Space Station identification (crosswords puzzle, observations, data, and conclusions); (2) Crystallography (triclinic, tetragonal, hexagonal, isometric, orthorhombic, monoclinic); and (3) Spectral Analysis (complete visible spectrum, lithium spectrum, helium spectrum). A fact sheet for the International Space Station is also included. (JRH)
