This section contains a collection of GOAL initiatives. As you will see, some of these best practices can be used in the subject areas and with complementary educational services' personnel.

Science:
  • Astrobiology Curriculum  http://astrobio.terc.edu/  Suitable for middle school and high school students, this site provides a series of inquiry-based activities centered on the search for life on other planets. Students will explore diverse concepts in chemistry, biology, physics, Earth and space science, and engineering.
  • Canadian Space Agency Educator's Corner  http://www.space.gc.ca/  The Canadian Space Agency's website has an Educator's Corner for teachers which offers detailed lesson plans, materials, ideas for demonstrations/experiments and a guest speakers bureau related to space, environment and other science themes. Lesson plans are clearly labeled for grade level and topic. The Mission to Mars unit is an excellent integrated unit which also can be linked to art, language arts and mathematics activities.
