Poster: Students can use word processing
programs (Word, AppleWorks) or graphic design programs (KidPix)
to design and publish "posters" with images imported
from the database. The Space Poster addresses Science standards
and offers a way for students to create a visual to show key points
of what they have learned about astronomy. The poster could be
used as the visual to support an oral presentation, which would
offer more details about the telescopes and space missions.
All kinds of telescopes have been
used to help us learn about our solar system and what lies beyond
refracting telescopes, radio telescopes, and the Hubble space
Technology has also allowed us to explore the
solar system up close, either in person or using robotics and probes.
