About This Daily Classroom Special
The Need to Explore was created by
Buzz Eyler, a
former Teachers Network web mentor, to provide teachers with a project to meet a number of geography and social studies curriculum standards. If you are a teacher or other educator, you may freely link to this address, but please do not re-publish for personal gain or compensation.
The Future Is Now
Just as in Columbus's time, we are continuing to explore and discover new places. However, we have now turned our attention to space in addition to our own world. We have sent satellites to almost all of the planets, the sun and out past our solar system.
A number of nations on Earth are building a space station which will orbit above us. The links below will help you learn about that project and help you with your activities which follow.
