Promote heady-duty discussion in your classroom with this fascinating book about not believing everything you read, hear and see on tv in Washington or at the movies, and separating science from science fiction. Help your students discern between breathtaking science headlines, such as the 1996 discovery of an ancient Martian rock found in Antarctica (which may contain life forms), and tabloid trash that can lead to cult suicides, such as the 1997 tragedy in California. This upbeat book examines what is and is not zipping through our state's sky, while still communicating the mystery and wonder of space. Students will have a close encounter with critical thinking! Reproducible activities, Galactic Glossary, appendix of state space sites, and bibliography (with websites!) included. Free teacher's guide gives specific suggestions & instructions on how to get max educational value from this book. If there was ever the right time for your students to read a book like this, the time is now!
