Name:NASA Human Space Flight

Brief Description of the Site:
NASA maintains a web site specifically so that elementary school children can understand about living in space, and the site is huge. Find out the latest about space food under "What's Cookin'" and check out space suit fashion under "Space Wear". How do you do the laundry in space, and what are the parts of those space suits we've come to recognize? It's all there in "Kidspeak". There's Space Work (experiments and housework to keep the space craft in working order) and there's Space Fun (Working Out and Cool Stuff), and let's not forget "Eating Right in Space" for nutrition enthusiasts.

How to use the site:
This is a site that can be teacher directed but students can actually work independently to do research using this resource. Students can learn about past International Space Station missions and their crew. The actual experiments that have been conducted on the ISS might need teacher explanation for the younger set, but are accessible.
