HUBBLE 3D: Experience the gripping story – full of hope, crushing disappointment, dazzling ingenuity, bravery, and triumph in Hubble 3D, the seventh awe-inspiring film from the award-winning IMAX Space Team. Through the power of IMAX 3D, Hubble 3D will enable movie-goers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history. The film will offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.  Website Educator Guide
MYSTERIES OF THE GREAT LAKES: It takes a drop of water nearly 400 years to travel from the headwaters of Lake Superior to the edge of Lake Ontario.  Along the way, the water passes by towering cliffs dotted with early Native American pictographs, caribou and moose grazing on the shores, over giant prehistoric sturgeon lurking among thousands of shipwrecks and past nearly 40 million people who live along the more than 10,000 miles of coastline.  It is a dramatic journey through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.  Now, you can witness the Mysteries of the Great Lakes on the only screen large enough to reveal them, in IMAX!  Website Educator Guide 1-3, Educator Guide 4-6 Educator Guide 7-8

Resource: FREE “Journey to the Stars” DVD from NASA
Provider: NASA: Journey to the Stars
Summary: Age Range: 5-18 (Grades 5-12) NASA and the American Museum of Natural History have produced a planetarium show about the stars in our cosmos including exploding stars, giant stars, dwarf stars, neutron stars, and even our own star, the Sun
Description: But you don’t have to go to a planetarium to experience it, because NASA will send you a Journey to the Stars DVD absolutely free!

Your free DVD comes with a free Teacher’s Guide and activities for grades 3-12 that are fun, innovative, and meet national science standards. (Preview the guide at the website.)

The DVD is narrated by actress Whoopi Goldberg who takes you on a virtual trip through time and space. “Best of all, the show is dead-on accurate.
