This month we’re focusing on Space!

 

Starting with the basics, we’ve created a handy Spotlight on Space Exploration for primary-age students:

In this Spotlight you’ll find our article on electricity, plus a quiz, crossword and word search to help students practice retaining information. You’ll also find loads of links to other great activities!

 

For secondary, we’re created a microsite which takes a more in-depth look at outer space, the objects in it and the theories that surround it all:

Here you will find links to articles about a variety of topics, from solar wind to Sputnik, from Galileo to the Mars rover! These articles will help students complete the quiz, word search and crossword.

There are also lesson plans and we’ve created an infographic that outlines the planets in our solar system and some of their key features.

 

And if you’re looking for images, check out ImageQuest! Take a look at these searches:
