about.jpg, 3KB K-3 Space® is a program developed by Space Explorers, Inc. in partnership with the Einstein Project. The program is designed to give early elementary students the general knowledge, understanding and skills they need to take an active interest in space. The K-3 Space® program uses both hands-on and computer based activities all delivered via the Internet. Each grade-level unit contains both continual assessment and pre/post assessment activities. K-3 Space® provides a series of grade-level specific lessons that expose students to many of the general principles of space science such as gravity, orbits, reflection of light, phases of the moon, and distances between the Sun, Moon, and planets.
