ELL Literacy with NASA: Earth Impacts and the Dark Ages!
Nice site that has students asking atronomers about the relationship between a catastrophic impact and the Dark Ages. See attached assignment. The site has not been updated for over a year. It is unclear whether or not the "ask a scientist" section is still viable. However, this site and the links located within the site are great discussion starters for the 7th grade level.
