published by the NASA CERES Project
This page from CERES (Center for Educational Resources Project) features classroom-ready lessons for K-12 classes, developed by a team of master teachers, NASA researchers, and university faculty. The activities are designed to integrate themes and unifying concepts in science with astronomy objectives, and provide concrete experiences for observation, comparison, and organization of data about our solar system and the Milky Way galaxy.  

Lessons are organized by grade bands: K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. Some integrate NASA data to allow students to construct first-hand knowledge of the universe. All lessons are aligned to the NRC National Science Education Standards.
