Product Description
Human Space Exploration - Fully editable and Complete 5E Lesson. By purchasing this bundle you will save 50% vs. purchasing the individual components separately.

Lesson Objectives:
By the end of this 5E lesson, students will:
• Investigate human space history
• Learn about the current space program including the ISS and the role it plays in the development of our scientific knowledge
• Be able to describe how astronauts perform everyday activities such as showering, sleeping, eating, etc.
• Explain the negative effects of microgravity and what astronauts do to combat it
• Think about the limitations of human space travel as well as possible long-term solutions

How does the 5E model facilitate learning?
• It emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and the process of science
• Its success is backed by countless scientific studies that demonstrate its effectiveness
• It’s built around the idea that humans construct knowledge and meaning from their learning experiences. That they build upon their prior knowledge and to be effective, learning needs to be active and allow the participants to construct new knowledge from their experiences

****************If you'd like to save some money, please consider my 5E Mega Bundle. By purchasing it, you'll save 77% compared with purchasing each 5E lesson individually. CLICK HERE to have a look

------------------------------------------------------------

The NRC's How People Learn has synthesized decades of research across many different disciplines about how people learn (NRC, 1999 blue right-pointing triangle). Key findings from that synthesis include the following. First, students (people) must be interested and engaged in what they are learning and find it useful and meaningful. Second, students (people) must be actively involved in the process of teaching and learning, comparing new information to previous ideas, constructing new understandings, and quite simply changing their own minds about how the world works. And third, students (people) need opportunities to apply what they have learned to new situations, to check the completeness of their understanding, and to evaluate their own learning for themselves. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2931660/)

By incorporating this 5E lesson, you will provide your students with a meaningful and coherent way of learning that best suits their needs. You will also utilize technology in a way that creates order and promotes understanding.

Explore - Life In Space - 7 Engaging Lab Station Activities

This fully editable Lab Station Activity on Life In Space is meant to get your students out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students knowledge (offer an opinion, answer questions based on a video or reading, draw, etc.), but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids are learning through assessment. Each station comes with a description card while some also contain more detailed instructions, a reading, questions to answer, etc. Students are equipped with a recording sheet (passport) to write their answers. There is almost no prep for you. Simply print the cards, lay them out around the room and you're all set. An answer key is also provided where applicable.

This lab activity covers:
- Life in Outer Space
- Human space history
- The ISS
- The negative effects of microgravity
- Long-term solutions to life in space

These station cards are meant to be used as a lab activity but can also be utilized in a review task before a test or a quiz. Used either way, your students will love it! I know mine do and I'm telling you from first-hand experience as I've used this activity in my own class,

How do the Lab Stations work? Each station is specially designed to be a unique complement to the material while at the same time, provide a valuable learning experience. Below is an overview of how each station works. In your activity, each will be tailored to the specific content.

Station 1: Get Hands-On – using their creative skills, students are required to draw or build.

Station 2: Research – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must research a specific question/issue surrounding the topic.

Station 3: Explain yourself – students write down an opinion to a question in paragraph form.

Station 4: Rest Station - students can use this time to catch up on work they didn't have time to complete at a previous station or prepare themselves for an upcoming one.

Station 5 - Applicability reading – students read a short passage from an article, website, etc. which directly connects the classroom content to a real life application.

Station 6: Test your knowledge – students answer 5 multiple choice questions then provide a written explanation for how/why they came to their conclusions.

Station 7: Learn from the expert – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must watch a short video clip and answer the associated questions. They may stop, rewind and restart as often as they like during the time frame.

Station 8 - Rest Station.

Station 9: Become the question master – Students must create 2 multiple-choice questions, 2 true/false questions and 1 short answer question. Students must also supply the answers

The student version of the PowerPoints contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy.
