Athena, Earth and Space Science for K-12
Entry ID: NASA-Athena
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: Athena has Instructional Material for use by students and teachers in the classroom, and it has Other Material. Most of the instructional material uses student activities, and some of it is supported by Teacher Talk. This Site Table of Contents first lists the instructional material, sorted by major scientific topic - Oceans, Earth Resources, Weather, Space, and General Information. A second section then lists the Other Material, similarly sorted. Selecting a major topic in the present document takes you to a detailed table of contents for that topic, with each listed file further selectable. Those detailed tables also provide reference material. In the interest of brevity the present Site Table of Contents provides less detail and only a few special items are selectable.

The Directory for Teachers shows the target grade levels of each Instructional Piece, notes the status of its Teacher Talk, and provides other information. There are direct links to the materials.
