Analyzes a project-based space science curriculum designed to support elementary school students in understanding complex, inter-related astronomy concepts. Uses pre- and post-interviews, examines student work, and has students complete a pre- and post-astronomy conceptual survey to assess conceptual change. Points out that instruction should respect students' pre-existing ideas. (Contains 37 references.) (Author/YDS)
