Module 12 - The Solar System

Module 12 - The Solar System - WWW links

There is a lot of excellent revision material on the web on the Earth, space, the Moon, stars and galaxies etc. Here are a few of the best sites.

  • Virtual Tour of The Solar System - a superb animated tour of the solar system - highly recommended (requires Macromedia Shockwave).
  • The site on the topci features a quiz and animations to explain the key ideas
  • The BBC Space site features a 3D tour of the solar system and loads of information on the planets, the Moon and space travel.
  • Phases of the moon allows you to examine how the appearance of the moon changes as it orbits Earth. For the best effect select 'both' as the view. Enter a value of 0.5 for a new moon, 0.25 or 0.75 for a half moon and other values between 0 and 1 for gibbous or crescent moons - experiment and see if you can predict what the moon will look like for different values.
  • The Planets gives you lots of information about the different planets and some excellent photos from the visiting probes.
  • BBC Key Stage 3 Bite Size - the Earth and Beyond is a high class revision site with all of the important information that you need.

Don't forget to try our multiple choice quiz on the topic!
