Geo-Lens: Introduction to Moons, Planets, Stars & Earth Science (GLIMPSES)

GLIMPSESTM provides FREE instructional materials for teachers using Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards to teach Astronomy, Space Science/Space Systems, and Earth Science/Earth Systems.

Our current materials are designed for use in conjunction with reading LANA & THE WATER, the middle-grade novel featuring Logical Lana McNair and her magic telescope. Recommended for children in Grades 4 through 7, the novel introduces space science and astronomy concepts as it explores the relationship between celestial constellations and the Greek mythological characters for which they are named. It can also be read aloud to children in Grades 2 and 3.

Logical Lana McNair appears throughout our materials to zero in on important topics with her telescope's Geo-LensTM. She offers cool science facts in an entertaining manner!
