Star Spotters: Telescopes and Observatories

“This�is the International Year of�Astronomy, and teachers are looking for great resources to use with young students to stimulate questions about distant phenomena.�This series of books may provide the answer for teachers...I would use these books as a resource for student research beginning in third grade with teacher guidance and then independently in the upper elementary grades through middle school. I would also use these books in middle school and beginning high school for special needs students.�With these resources,�astronomy will not seem as overwhelming or distant for young observers.” —National Science Teacher's Association, 03/09
