Astronomy: It's Out of This World
Youngsters from 8 - 12 can walk through the solar system and search the night sky while learning about the basics of astronomy. 15 easy, but very informative, hands-on projects and experiments teach kids about stars, night vision, night activities, the moon, the solar system, telescopes, constellations and sundials. Astronomy periodicals, web sites, equipment vendors, observatories and planetariums, and astronomy clubs are listed with contact information so students and leaders alike may advance their knowledge even further.
