Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum


NASA provides a great site for teachers to share the exciting discoveries of Space with their students. The expertise of scientists, educators, and museums has been gathered together to provide information that focuses on the Sun and its effects on Earth. Teachers will enjoy the Educator Resources section that offers "hundreds of classroom activities." There are sites from all NASA missions that study the connection between Sun and Earth as well as "Ask a Scientist." Of particular interest is the Eclipse Archive, a great site for eclipse photography lovers. Teachers can check their students' knowledge of Sun-Earth science by exploring "Ten Things You Thought You Knew About Sun-Earth Science."
