This session will engage participants in working with astronaut photography images of Earth and will ultimately provide teachers with ready-to-use activities that will enhance their classroom instruction. Activities will be inquiry-based and allow the hook of space exploration to inspire students to be more engaged in their learning. Teachers will learn about the Expedition Earth and Beyond Program which provides classrooms with hands-on activities, the opportunity to participate in distance learning events connecting classrooms with scientists, and the opportunity to have students conduct authentic research using images acquired by astronauts on the International Space Station. Participants will leave this session with standards-aligned,ready-to-use activities easily incorporated into their classrooms and the knowledge of how they can have their classrooms benefit from other opportunities. Participants will increase their own personal knowledge of activities being conducted on/from the International Space Station, increase their background knowledge of Earth and other planetary bodies in our solar system, and learn new strategies of how to incorporate inquiry-based activities and techniques in the classroom.
