Spectacles in Space: A Museum of the Hubble Telescope
Vermillion, Patricia
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v20 n7 p30-33 Mar 2004
When the space shuttle "Columbia" was "lost entering the Earth's atmosphere," third graders at the Lamplighter School in Texas became curious about space travel. Using topics of interest and brainstorming exercises based on a presentation by Elaine Scott, author of "Adventures in Space: The Flight to Fix the Hubble," the author and her colleagues created a research unit for their third grade students that culminated in the creation of a "Space Museum" containing an art project about each student's area of research. This article describes the collaboration between the school's library media specialist and third grade teachers and presents a lesson overview. (Contains 9 resources.)
