Free STEAM lessons

With so many families suddenly homeschooling, I made three free astronomy mini-lessons. They’re for kids 8-12, & they explore the number of stars in the sky and the vastness of the universe. If you live in the city & your kids can barely see the Milky Way at night, these lessons are for you.

Each lesson has a short reading and a STEAM activity. Total time about 30-60 mins per lesson, depending on the kid.

Please share, remix, reuse & enjoy. (CC-BY-4.0)
