Since I found out that I'd be moving into the junior high and teaching science, I've been working on my school website for next year. I know, crazy. I figured that I have so much to do before school begins again in 7 weeks. (Yes, I only get 7 weeks off. It is the only time all year that I don't like being on a year round schedule.) I figured that by putting together the science pages, that I would refamiliarizing myself with the science that I haven't seen since...oh, I can't even remember that far back! So I thought that I would share some really cool things I've found related to space.
Interactive clip I found on Pinterest, that I love!!
Smithsonian also does an amazing job and relates the size to your own surroundings!
Thanks, Science Gal, for this one. Scale size of small and large!
Teaching all about seasons? I found this interactive, and a great site that explains common misconceptions. Score on both of these also.
If you are looking for current event related sites, try Slooh Space Camera or Sky Walk, a blog out of Australia that gives a Southern Hemisphere perspective.
Trying to link it all together? Try the legends behind the constellations, history of telescopes, or a myth about eclipses in kid friendly language.
If you've got sites that are interactive or kid friendly, let me know so I can add it to my class page!
