A Travelers Guide to the Planets

The Educational Technology Guy shared a great science resource today from National Geographic. A Travelers Guide to the planet is an interactive resource that allows you and your students to study any of the planets. Pluto is still included however Earth is not listed. Click on the title of this post or here to go to the site. It takes a few seconds to load so be patient. The first screen will open with Mercury. Here you may learn more about that planet by clicking on visit or any of the buttons near the bottom. To check out another planet click on the symbols below the picture. Make sure you find the forward button near the bottom so the info can be read aloud. I am impressed and plan to use this right away with a 4th grade classroom.
