Texas 3rd Grade Social Studies TEKS 3.14a is about American Heroes.
This powerpoint covers 2 of the heroes listed: Ellen Ochoa and James Lovell.
This makes for a great addition to any solar system unit or when discussing famous astronauts.
This ppt gives a brief overview of each person. It also includes a link to a website where students can see actual footage of Ellen Ochoa's liftoff and landing on the space shuttle.
