But for those moment when you just have to come inside, and someone sits down at the computer, put them in front of the Scale of the Universe 2.
Oh my! There’s nothing like a visual to put substance to a bunch of facts! But be forewarned. The universe is a might large place and you can spend a lot of time exploring it here. 🙂
As with all sites I recommend for kids, remember: their visit to a website should provide opportunities for conversation. Scale of the Universe 2 is a case in point. Not only is conversation good for your relationship with your kids (we can all fall into the habit of just giving them commands and never really talking) but it also builds key literacy skills.
So when everyone’s too tired to play anymore, take a stroll around the universe, big and small!
