This article describes articles with lesson ideas and information and websites with the same on how the Earth, Sun and Moon interact and other astronomy topics. These resources could not only be used for elementary but some of them would be applicable for upper grades as well - wonderful compilation of resources!

NASA and NSTA joined forces to create some spectacular resources to help teachers with engaging space and science lessons. This article highlights many the resources available in the NSTA Learning Center and contains a chart that lists articles with space and earth science concepts via two Science Objects. The Science Objects included are “Characteristics of the Earth” and “Our Moving Earth”.
