Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can allow students to browse the collection of images and videos that are included in this app. Next, students can choose their favorite image or video. Finally, students can compose a rationale explaining why they chose the image or video they did as their favorite. In their rationale, students must use evidence from the image or video to support their reasoning for selecting the image or video as their favorite.
  2. To begin a unit on space or as part of a lesson about space, teachers can use this app to show students images of the topics they will be or are discussing.
  3. Teachers can use Star Chart as a hook for a space lesson. After introducing a star, planet, or galaxy, teachers can instruct students to use this app to further research the lesson material.
  4. Students can use the Space Images app in conjunction with the NASA app to explore stars, planets, comets, and constellations. Then, students can choose a topic they would like to study in depth. Students can then use their web browser, Google Search, or Bing for iPad to research their topic. Notes can be stored in Pocket, and final papers can be created in Pages or Google Drive.
  5. Teachers can assign a space topic to students. Next, students can create an informational presentation to teach the class about their assigned topic. Using InkFlow, iThoughtsHD, or SimpleMind+, students can organize their projects. If working in pairs, students can collaborate using Dropbox or Google Drive. Final projects can be created in iMovie, Touchcast, Keynote, or HaikuDeck.
