We need you and your students to help us craft a top-notch resource for teachers! Educators at the Adler Planetarium have been hard at work creating an educators guide aimed at helping teachers bring the thrilling hunt for exoplanets into their classroom. The first draft is nearly ready and we want to know what you think.
We’re looking for US-based 6th -8th grade teachers to try one or more lessons from the Planet Hunters Educators Guide this spring with their students. Each lesson can be taught as a stand alone activity and takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes of class time. We want to know what works, what needs to change, and any other feedback you can provide.
Besides, one of your students may just discover a new planet! You can’t get that in gym class (although physical fitness is very important).
