The Solar System Review
This sci-pack is very good for learning about the Solar System. It contains a lot of important and useful information for thoroughly learning the material. But, one thing is that this sci-pack was very difficult. It took me several tries to pass it, but in the end I obtained new knowledge. It may be difficult for teachers to use this resource for teaching because although the information is categorized into sections, there is so much difficult information that may be hard to teach. I believe the sci-pack is not laid out in a way for teachers to use as a guide for teaching. But, the sci-pack was a good way of learning the material so that the teacher has full knowledge on the topic. A benefit of the assessment being hard was that I learned a lot from reading the information numerous times and also taking the assessment several times. Lastly, I like that the sci-pack contains a ton of information because it includes everything and all the information needed to learn about the Solar System.

A Close-Up Look at the Red Planet Review
At first, the resource seemed a bit confusing because I thought the little introduction was everything. But, after I explored the page more, I found interesting sites and links. I like that there is a page of sites for teachers and students. The links could be very useful and underneath the link, there is a description of what the page is about, so that is helpful. But, I dislike how you have to continuously click on link and more links in order to discover more. But, overall the many websites posted could be very useful for teaching.
