Solve a Space Mystery, 5-9
Space Mysteries is a series of inquiry-based, interactive Web explorations that builds critical thinking and analytical skills. To solve each space mystery, students are required to access and analyze actual data from NASA missions, including video interviews with real NASA scientists. The Mysteries allow students to develop and practice important science skills at their own pace. Each Mystery has been constructed to teach at least one of the important physical science standards (for example, interactions of energy and matter, structures and properties of matter, energy, motion or forces). Each Mystery also has resources for the teacher including a teacher’s guide and Web links.
