Our home in space: Singing puppets, colorful graphics, and NASA footage come together to teach students about the familiar sights in our sky.
A closer look at Earth: From above and below the surface, students take a closer look at what makes the third planet from the sun so special.
A closer look at the moon: This inspiring look at the moon helps students understand what makes Earth's nearest neighbor so unique. Take a close look at the moon and learn why there are so many more craters on it than on Earth. Learn how the moon affects our oceans' tides. Understand the phases of the moon and discover the difference between a waxing and waning moon. Learn about lunar and solar eclipses and the moon's orbit around Earth.
A closer look at the planets: With the amazing clarity of new Hubble photography and 3D animation, students will discover "What happened to Pluto?" Newer planet categories like Terrestial and Jovian and new terminology like "Plutons" are made concrete and easy to understand.
A closer look at the sun and stars: When you look at the stars what do you see? It's time to separate fact from fiction as we discover why stars light the sky; learn about constellations, amazing facts about Polaris, and why stars appear to move with the seasons. Then we take a look at our own sun to discuss energy, sunspots, seasons, the greenhouse effect, and photosynthesis.
