ELL Literacy with NASA: Space Weather
Excellent source for interaction with the concept of weather.See attached assignment and please add your own. You will need volunteers to come in and work with your students on this one. The website is advanced and has a lot of bells and whistles. Make sure you have the plug-ins and audio. This lesson is designed for first grade but is very advanced.

Discussion for ELL Literacy with NASA: Space Weather

My first grade students loved using this site. The challenge of motivating my students to write was made easier by the Windows to the Universe Journal, Postcards, and ask a Scientist. They learned about weather, the planets and wanted to learn even more about space in general. I appreciated being able to use the site to stimulate their interest in space and writing about space.
The program is easy to navigate and understand.
