Space Unit Overview
Science4Us makes the study of Space accessible to K-2 learners, building their knowledge in this complex subject through play and inquiry, listening and responding, writing and experimenting.
Exploring the Universe
Exploring the Universe begins with elements of space that we can see, like the sun and stars. In interactive online activities, students learn about the sun and stars and the Milky Way. Students learn to distinguish stars in the night sky from planets, airplanes or the International Space Station.Learn More about the Exploring the Universe lesson module
Earth in Space
The Earth in Space module helps students understand Earth’s place in space by thinking about cycles and patterns. As students learn about and reproduce the cycles of the moon and the seasons, they broaden their understanding of the Earth’s rotation and the moon’s orbit around the Earth. Reinforcing these concepts as well as student’s math skills, students perform a number of pattern-building activities In offline learning activities, students do some kinesthetic learning by performing a spinning and orbiting dance.Learn More about the Earth in Space lesson module
