GEMS Curriculum Sequences offer extensive benefits, including greater coherence as units build on one another; increased scientific depth, with science concepts presented in a manner that supports the teacher; increased educational depth with extensive pedagogical support; formative and summative assessment tools; and, readings and technology components for use with students. An overview of the GEMS Curriculum Sequences approach is provided in this brief 2-page document. George Nelson, former shuttle astronaut and now education researcher, said in his keynote address to the attendees of a NASA EPO (Education and Public Outreach) conference in Chicago that, "We would do well to become familiar with these materials and promote them to teachers and schools rather than trying to create something else." He further commented that, "These instructional materials responded to the challenge I made a few years ago to produce something that incorporates the best of NASA's cutting edge research to help children learn grade-level appropriate ideas in astronomy in the time available." Read the full text of the address here. We also have two other sequences, the GEMS Curriculum Sequence for Ocean Sciences for Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8, each described here.
