Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.

Lesson Plan: Creativity in Science PDF Document
Humans are very curious and have been seeking knowledge since ancient times. Scientists are especially curious. They want to know many things. Scientists and engineers, who know a lot about technology, worked together to create satellites so many different things could be studied. Today, satellites are used for navigation, television broadcasts, communication, and for studying space.
Discussion of Swift satellite data and involvement of many different roles in the project. See Teachers Notes PDF Document for elaboration.
Teamwork in Science QuickTime Video
See Teachers Notes PDF Document for elaboration.
Part 1: Discuss with the students how satellites are part of their everyday life. The weather channel is a good example.
Part 2: Next, show the students Video 6:
Teamwork in Science QuickTime Video[Time – 4:37] and discuss the various job roles contributed to the development and discoveries of Swift satellite.
Part 3: Allow students complete the Explore Swift Data and Contributors (Student Handout PDF Document) in groups and ask them share their ideas for Part 2
