Classroom Activities
  • GRACE Educational Activities
    In partnership with 10 Master Teachers across the nation the Texas Space Grant Consortium has developed over 70 kindergarten though 12th grade classroom activities that are aligned to the national education standards. These activities are available on this web site in PDF format.

  • Space Explorers
    An interdisciplinary space exploration education curriculum designed for middle school youth funded by the Texas Space Grant Consortium. The curriculum includes lessons for use in mathematics, language arts, social studies, science, computer, theater, physical education, and art classes. Students will broaden their knowledge and comprehension of space exploration through interactive, hands-on learning activities.

    Audience: Fifth to eighth grade middle school students.

  • Space Vision
    Concepts of Astronomy and space exploration are likely to be more abstract to a visually impaired person than to other people. However they encounter news about the Solar System through their daily life. Space Vision's goal is to satisfy the interest of visually impaired students and help them understand these concepts. TSGC, in cooperation with the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) organized an annual enhancement workshop with Astronomy theme in 2004. Hands-on, in inquiry-based activities were adapted or developed make astronomy accessible, and to engage the students in the scientific discovery process.
