Summary:Age Range: 9 -18 (Grades 3-12 approximately, with parental supervision). This ad-supported website has free scientific fact sheets containing "Everything You Ever Wanted To know About Our Solar System."

Description:When you get to the site you'll see a scrolling screen that displays cartoon animations of the 8 planets in our Solar System along with an interesting fact about each one. Use the horizontal menu at the top of the page to explore the more content-rich information and fact sheets (that contain terrific photographs) archived under the headings:
  • The Sun
  • The Planets
  • The Moon
  • Dwarf Planets
  • Other Bodies (Asteroids, Meteors, Oort Clouds, etc.)
  • Astronomy (Astronomy, Galaxy, Gravity, etc.)
  • Space Exploration (Space Travel, Alien Life, etc.)
The facts are great conversation starters and may springboard your kids to want to learn much more.

Interestingly, we couldn't find any information on this UK-based website that explains who sponsors the site. We didn't find any notations or references for the source of the information either - even though it looks to be current and accurate. Therefore, as always, parents should preview the site and supervise all Internet use.
