Become a Fan of NASA's Space Place
For those of you with Facebook pages, we just created a page for NASA's Space Place Web site (http://spaceplace.nasa.gov
). You can find our Facebook page at http://facebook.com/nasaspaceplace
. The Space Place is an extensive, content-rich Web site for upper elementary age kids, their teachers, parents and anyone else who likes a simple, readable, fun presentation of a wide range of space, Earth science and technology topics. Most of the site is great for kids to explore on their own, with interactive games, hands-on projects and fun facts. But it also has lots of stuff for teachers. Teachers especially appreciate the bi-monthly Space Place Newsletter for educators, which has lots of suggestions for how to use the resources of this Web site in the classroom. See the "Teacher's Corner" at http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/en/educators
Check out "NASA's The Space Place" new page on Facebook, where you will also find exclusive content only for our Facebook fans! Become a fan, and we'll also let you know whenever we add a new game, animation, cartoon "talk show," fun fact or any other interesting stuff. It's a great way to explore space!
