Space for kids picks out the best Space activities and ideas to get you inspired.
Find free games, take your own photos using a remote telescope, build a homeschool probe, watch Brian Cox, and see how amazing the Universe really is.
I've checked with the Astro-Physics Department of Liverpool University, and if you are a home educator in the UK you can use a remote telescope based in the Canaries to take your own images of the Planets, Moon, galaxies etc. It's a fantastic resource called the Liverpool Telescope run by the schools observatory which William and I enjoy using. Put your own address and contact details and enter 'Other' where it says 'School Category.'
There's some great sets to enjoy.
All About Space is a new mag that has only just come out and William and I think it's really great.
