I like this site and find it to be a helpful tool for planning lessons about the solar system in a K-8 classroom. There are 10 weeks worth of lectures, which seems overwhelming, but I'll use them and modify them to work for my class. The list of resources is helpful because there are links to many sites that I can use in my class.

This is an excellent site. From the POV of the parent of a frustrated college Freshman, this helped enormously as a tutorial. Wish the instructor at "our" institution had even half of this resource.

I thought this was an excellant resource for someone needing an "introduction" to our Solar System. I can see myself using this as a supplement to an existing lesson plan for 6th or 7th graders (perhaps younger).
If you are from outside the "assigned class" you will find it a little more challenging to locate all of the planets of the Solar System as the lecture headings do not always name the planets.
