The Stardust Mystery: FREE resources for educators
The Stardust Mystery is a fun new story for late elementary and middle school science learning. The theme of the resources created by fellow educator Peter Solomon and his team is: we are made of STARDUST that was once in the body of Albert Einstein and the last T-Rex. This is true. We each have more than 300 trillion carbon atoms that once belonged to, and were exhaled by Einstein, and more than 5,000 trillion that were once in each T-Rex. And those atoms were created in the end of life supernova explosions of stars.
The Stardust Mystery is the story of atoms, their kinds, sizes, numbers, and arrangements. It is the story of how they were created during the evolution of the universe, and how they have been shared among plants and animals during the history of planet Earth. The book follows four young cousins as they discover these concepts. Fellow educator, Peter Solomon, is making this new illustrated science story book, The Stardust Mystery, available to teachers FREE for a limited time. You can find out more about the book on Amazon.
The book has companion video games, YouTube science videos, short stories, lesson plans, and student projects. These resources, most of which are free (see attached PDF), were created with grants from the National Science Foundation. Here is an example of one of the science videos on the Stardust Mystery YouTube channel:
