The Exploratorium - This site is a self-guided tour and history of using satellites to see the earth from above. Along with menu items like people, place, ideas, and tools, there are webcasts and a section explaining how NASA's LandSat works. This would make good supplementary material for a unit of study on space or landforms.

tag(s): landforms (47), stars (65), telescopes (8)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on space exploration. To assess student learning, have students create online posters on paper, or if you are beginning to incorporate technology in your class make the posters together using a tool such as PicLits, reviewed here. If you and your classes are more advanced in using technology try Genial.ly, reviewed here. Genial.ly allows you to create interactive posters by adding polls, videos, embeds, web links, PowerPoint, and PDfs.
