Space Science *NEW!*
I think I'll organize the following pieces of information according to topic. It should end up being the order that we learn things throughout the unit.
The first video we watched on the universe - with the awesomely creepy singing...
Big Bang video - BrainPop (UN: olhms1, PW: brainpop ~ 'til 5pm!)
Super Awesome Scale of the Universe Website from class 4/18 *FYI, my sister figured out that you can click on the names of things for info. Of course I didn't figure that out after using it like 5 times. Whatever.
