This unit plan is based on the NASA’s Best Student Activity located at http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/best/activities.html. The unit includes lesson plans for the four core curriculum areas: science, social studies, math and language arts. Although this unit plan was specifically developed for high school students with learning and behavioral disabilities, the NASA challenges are designed for grades 5-8 and the accompanying core area lessons are roughly on the same level.
