Miss Q is here to help!
Miss Q Space Explorations meet NGSS Space Systems PEs, DCIs, Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and a variety of Common Core ELA and Math standards all in one fun program!
Miss Q Space Explorations are modular and flexible. The lessons and activities can be used to supplement a traditional textbook curriculum, as a standalone 4-week unit, or as the basis for a year-long theme.
The format of Miss Q Space Explorations includes three main components:
· Observations—Use observations of the sun and shadows to reveal patterns of daily and seasonal changes.
· Modeling activities—Create fun kinesthetic and hands-on models to explore patterns of the Earth, Moon, Sun, and stars.
· Spacecat Headquarters—An ongoing science station in which students analyze their data, develop imaginative space themes in writing and art, and further explore Earth’s interstellar neighborhood.
Package includes comprehensive teacher guide. Table of contents and introductory material included in preview. Student worksheets for a sample modeling activity available as a free download from the Miss Q Spacecat store.
