I am currently in an Astrobiology class and I enjoyed how this article provides the brief over of Astrobiology and how it connects to NGSS. Astrobiology is not specifically cited within the curriculum, but the articles show how you can incorporate into your classroom through the disciplines. This attractive article provides resources for teachers to use from grades of elementary and middle school.
