Just last week, we started our Outer Space unit. We will be reaching for the stars and floating along the Milky Way until Christmas and I couldn't be happier! A friend of mine introduced me to the app "SkyView Free" for iPhone and I introduced it to my students on day during science while we were chatting about galaxies and constellations. My kids were passing around my phone spotting different constellations, satellites, International Space Station, and the Moon!

You can download "Google Sky Map" for Android users.
Trust me, this app is a sure way to impress your kids. I had several of my students download the app on their own devices at home.
Do you have any outer space apps you share with your students?
