Discussion for Honey, I Shrunk the Solar System

I really liked the different activities offered in connection with the Voyager probe. Having the students physically be the solar system to judge the scaled down distance between the planets is a great way to get students involved in science.

I can see myself using this in my future classroom. This site is very helpful and informative for teaching lessons about the solar systems. Students will enjoy this site because it's full of visuals and fun facts about outer space and the voyager missions. It will get them interested in science, and may spark an interest in space exploration among some students.
Time spent reviewing site: 10-15 minutes
