Meets one time for 70-90 minutes.
This short crash-course will discuss some of N.A.S.A.’s most famous accomplishments including Project Mercury, Project Gemini, Project Apollo (especially Apollo 8 and Apollo 11) the space shuttle era and its use with the Hubble Telescope and the International Space Station. The lesson also briefly discusses some famous astronauts and cosmonauts that ventured into space or onto the moon first. As the title indicates, much of the first half of the lesson focuses on the historical and epic space race between the Americans and the Soviets. I have prepared a 30+ PowerPoint Slideshow that we will go over in class together while we answer a short student packet.
