This is an excellent website for primary school kids to engage them into astronomical exploration at an early age. The information and the colorful pictures are superb and informative.

Fun activities for younger students, but require some parental involvement.

Great for students of all ages; at the younger ages it may require assistance. Has everything from the moon and the stars to the entire solar system. Great visuals.
