Our Solar System: A Multimedia PDF Resource for Teachers & Students
Nathan Smith, Director, NASA Regional Educator Resource Ctr. for Utah
NASA has some awesome resources that many educators are not aware of. I have created an interactive PDF file that links to NASA’s solar system lithograph set, a free download of 21 mini-posters of planets, moons, asteroids, Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud, etc. Each mini-poster contains detailed information on the reverse side.
At the bottom of the page, click on any planet image, and you’ll be taken to that planet’s NASA Solar System webpage, with a wealth of resources about that planet!
Click on any planet name to view a Crash Course YouTube video about that planet.
I’ve made this multimedia PDF an open education resource that is free to download, and share the wonders of our amazing solar system.
I train our pre-service educators at Utah State University’s College of Education and Human Services to integrate technology to create learning materials like these as part of my Technology Integration and Innovation for Education Course, which I’ve made an open education resource that any school or teacher may freely use!
