Countdown to Mars
After its exciting launch on July 30, 2020, Perseverance touched down on Mars on February 18, 2021. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we teamed up with NASA to bring you a special livestream event! Teachers were able to engage students across the STEM fields with insights into the Mars mission, live footage of the landing, and ready-to-use activities and resources. Find the archives of this event as well as all the related resources in our Explore Space with NASA channel.
Social-Emotional Learning Center
Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. In today’s world, helping all students develop and sustain these critical skills has never been more important. Discovery Education’s Social-Emotional Learning Center presents a curated collection of hundreds of resources designed to help educators integrate SEL into core instruction and to help students develop social and emotional competencies, cultivate self-confidence, manage stress, build supportive relationships, and maintain their well-being so all students can thrive. Content is aligned to SEL competences and is organized into tabs that focus on educator professional development and school culture, ready-to-use instructional activities, and multimodal, student-facing digital content for all grade bands. The Center was created with support from The Allstate Foundation.
