Good source to read in class
I found the article on the solar system update to be very helpful. It not only discusses Pluto and explore the planet Pluto, it allows us to label it be reiterating the meaning of a planet. I think the article is also a good source for not only the teachers but for the class to read as a whole and maybe do an assignment such as, do you think Pluto is a planet?

Good for Comprehension
I think the scipak was helpful for teachers to fully understand the topic of the earth and its motion. The misconceptions that students might have is also helpful so the teacher will know what to prepare for in advance. Also I found the videos very helpful because I am not a science person but I learn a lot of things visually. The video simplified the text. And I think assessments in the middle also helped me keep in track on what I was supposed to learn and if I didn't learn it the assessment was telling me "you should go back."
