We’re sharing the first complete draft of In-VESTA-Gate, our middle school unit on planetary systems, asteroids, meteors, and more. This unit aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards and goes along with the CosmoQuest citizen science project, Asteroid Mappers.
We need educators who can look over the unit and give us feedback from an educator’s perspective.These educators can have the chance to try one of the newer, non-NASA activities, such as the Gravity Misconceptions cards, Gravity Pulls You Down, Comet: Physical Model, Expedition Asteroid, The Long Winding Road to Earth, and Collision Course, with your classroom or group. If you are an energetic educator who can try out the entire unit, please contact CosmoQuest!
