    Many NASA guides are available here; to find guides by subject or age of users, search for specific guides, such as the Rotocraft Adventures and Rockets guides (reviewed here as a sample of guides available for educators).

These web-based educator guides include many materials for a variety of topics.  Some masterfully combine scientific content and engaging activities with clear guidance for instructors, but the quality varies so it’s best to check them out/decide.

This web-based set of educator's guides varies widely in style and quality. The guides masterfully incorporate exposure to the scientific method with comprehensive science content background, using clear instructions and hands-on learning. However, some guides involve too much lecture and discussion, or appear to push students towards prescribed conclusions.
