Summary:Educators from the University of Wyoming's departments of Secondary Education and Physics and Astronomy culled a collection of teaching resources to enhance astronomy instruction and increase STEM integration in K-12 classrooms. Produced by participants from past LASSI workshops, th elessons address various content areas and grade levels. Lessons include Robot Turtles and Coding and Determining the Mystery Planet (elementary); Analyzing Sunspots and Fire Beetle Technology (middle level); and Inverse Square Law With Lasers and Data Analysis for Finding Planets (high school). Accompanying Content Sheets for the topic areas addressed in the lessons (e.g., robotics, composition of the universe, sky motion, and others) list higher-, middle-, and lower-difficulty outcomes and offer connections to both the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core Standards.
