Lesson Plans


Using the ASM in the Classroom

The list below, which has been set up according to the type of user you are, is a list of lesson plans and projects to be used by you. All activities involve aspects of astrophysics. Lesson plans have been written in Directed Teacher Activity (DTA) format and have been designed to reflect performance based assessment goals (i.e. MSPAP). Projects have been created for both long and short term classroom use. Some projects have been specifically designed for Science Fair applications.

We will be updating this page continually throughout the summer, adding new lesson plans as we develop them, so please check back!
