NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day is an archive back to 1995 of photographs and videos taken by NASA.

Go to http://apod.nasa.gov and click on "Discover the Cosmos!" at the top left of the screen to get to the archive.

Each day of the year has a picture and description of said picture on the site. Possible activity with the students would be to have them look up their birth date (month, day, year) and composing a report of their "picture of the day". I did this with my class and it was well received.
