NASA's Space Place
has some great free space games. One of my son William's homeschool favorites is Quest
for a Comet where you are in charge of an orbiter and lander and have to
transmit data back to Earth.
Both these are very inspiring books which help your kids see anything is possible - a great homeschool message which I am sure we would all love our kids to share.
Use A Remote Telescope
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.'
Perfect if you're planning a space for kids project.
All About Space Magazine
All About Space is a monthly magazine which William and I think is really great.
link isn't an affiliate link which means I get nothing for suggesting this magazine,
but like all the recommendations on my homeschool website I choose what I suggest
not for money but because I hope they'll be useful.
If you're looking for a way to make space for kids interesting and keep up with all the latest discoveries - this is it!
I read the Wonders books on holiday camping with the stars shining above the
Books to inspire Space for kids by one of the best presenters
I won't be the only person with a picture of Brian Cox on my desktop.
Pictures Of Space
Looking at Space pictures is the way to really get kids amazed by the Universe. Here's a couple of great sites:
"With the education system failing so many brilliant
children it's great to be able to have resources like your website for
inspiration, ideas and just a sense of belonging. What you are doing for
your children is priceless." ~ Natalija
"I really appreciate your time and effort that goes into your posts... It's nice to see that you are a 2nd generation homeschooler." ~ Teresa
