Connecting these two things is awesome! One classroom I was completing my hours in was learning about fairy tales and folk tales, specifically The Three Little Pigs. The teacher divided the class into 3 groups. One group had to make a house of sticks (popsicle sticks), one group made a house of straw (drinking straws), and the orher house was made of bricks (legos). This allowed children to build...

This month I am working on the solar system with my little preschoolers in my field placement. The solar system is such an abstract concept for younger children and I would like to know how do I make it less intimidating? Do I teach every aspect or focus on just one (i.e stars, planets, earth, sun, moon, etc).

I loved this resource. For my class in college we completed something like this and it was very helpful in teaching us a variety of topics about the solar system. This resource can help many children learn because it is very interactive and hands on. I would definitely recommend this to a teacher in upper levels of elementary school teaching students about the solar system.

I thought that this resource was very useful. I like that it is different from the others, because there is not many podcasts under the topic Solar System. This source is very useful when it comes to teaching auditory learners because they are able to listen to someone talk about our solar system. This podcast also talks about recent discoveries so it is helpful to a teacher trying to teach recent facts about our solar system.
