Educators in Grades K-4

The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar. This month's theme is Solar System & Beyond.

Explore the mysteries of Saturn & Cassini with a blend of Science & Language Arts. Your students will start learning about Saturn just as the first observers of Saturn did — by observing and wondering. Your students will look at pictures of Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft, and the Huygens probe and write what they notice, know, and wonder. This activity invites students to observe carefully and learn from each other, while providing you with an idea of students’ prior experiences with this topic.
