dc.description.abstract Education occurs constantly, and not always in a classroom. I want my students to realize that learning does not end when they leave my classroom. I wrote lesson plans with the common theme of astronomy to show my students that astronomy is not limited to science. Not all lessons were specifically about astronomy, but they contained symbols or visual references which remind students of the integration of astronomy into every aspect of the curriculum. I want my students to realize that any area of interest they have should not be compartmentalized or limited. I want them to see that all aspects of life are interrelated with many commonalities and that they can use their knowledge to draw correlations and relationships between things.I wrote my lesson plans for different ages in elementary school so that they can be adapted or expanded to fit any age group. These lessons can easily be adapted for special education classes or for students with special needs so that they do not miss out on anything. I tried to make as many hands on lessons as possible to get children to be active learning participants. I also included extensions to lessons or activities children could do alone, both to increase learning opportunities and to allow the teacher flexibility in planning.
