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.

This article is about..".The Astrobiology materials, developed by the Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah, are appropriate for U.S. grades 7–12". The article describes briefly the materials available for this unit and also the results of the field tests.
