tag(s): planets (127), space (217), stars (65)

In the Classroom

The daily images would be an excellent stepping-stone to study other aspects of space and space exploration. Visit the archive to find any one item of particular interest. Better yet, allow students to choose an image from the archive for further exploration and research. Results could be reported as an infographic using Visme, reviewed here, for beginning technology teachers and students, or as an interactive newsletter using Sway, reviewed here, for those more advance in the use of technology with their class. Since this site is constantly updated, post a link on your webpage for those students and parents who want to check back frequently.
