This is a site has 2 different levels containing different facts about Pluto. Level 1 gives a description of Pluto’s properties, composition and its moons. It also discusses when Pluto was demoted from being a planet to a dwarf planet. There is also an audio function that reads the webpage to students and a short quiz question at the end testing their comprehension. The audio function also makes this site accessible to students with reading and language difficulties as well as students with vision impairments. Level 2 gives more detailed explanations of Pluto’s moons and details their composition. There is also a short quiz at the end to test comprehension, but no audio option.
Time spent reviewing site: 20 minutes.
