Astronaut Academy takes students on a journey into outer space. Students learn
to use the scientific method, participate in a simulation, and conduct research to
better understand how a scientist thinks. The unit has been designed around the
concept of exploration and provides both accelerated instruction and advanced content
targeting gifted kindergarten through third grade students. A variety of resources,
learning activities, and products are included as well as opportunities to adjust the rigor
up or down based on the needs and interests of the students.
