This website will help you imagine our solar system and give you an idea of how far away planets are from each other including our planet, Earth, and the sun. You can click and "visit" a planet to see what it looks like and where it is within our solar system. Click and drag the planets on their orbit around the sun. You'll be able to see how the inner planets orbit much faster than the outer planets!

iwaswondering...Women's Adventures in Science

Link: http://www.iwaswondering.org/
Contemporary women scientists are celebrated and showcased on this website sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences.

"The Women's Adventures in Science (WAS) project is designed to support kids, especially girls, in their scientific explorations so they learn the fundamental skills of scientific investigation and feel empowered to tackle such adventures. The activities and experiences of the biography series and Web site are inspired by the lives of 10 remarkable contemporary women scientists. This teacher guide suggests ways that the content of this project can be used as a teaching tool in the classroom and offers ideas for extending the content with additional questions and activities."
