Helping Children Understand 3 & 4

Helping Children Understand 3 & 4: Solar System; Outer Space

A combined version of Helping Children Understand 3: The Solar System and Helping Children Understand 4: Outer Space is available.
Helping Children Understand 3: The Solar System
Kids love to learn about astronomy and the solar system. In this program they discover the sun is our private star that gives us life every day. With its mass force it keeps all the planets in place. It's like a big game that has four rules (forces): the "Force of Gravity," a friendly force that helps planets spin, keeps them all together, and holds everything in place; the "Electromagnetic Force" that says positive and negative attract each other; like two magnets it holds the atoms of all matter together; "Strong Nuclear Force" that comes from the nucleus of the atom; like glue it holds the core together; "Weak Nuclear Force," which controls the tiniest particles in the nucleus and keeps the particles in the nucleus from crashing into each other.
Helping Children Understand 4: Outer Space
Why does the Earth remain suspended in the air? What makes the earth go round? Why does the Earth go around the Sun? These are the kinds of questions all children ask and wonder about. In this program children use experiments to help children visualize the wonders of gravity, mass or density, and weight. Planets and stars we see make "funnels" in space, which are like their "voices"; the heavier or denser the star or planet, the bigger the funnel, the louder its voice. Different sizes and densities affect how all the heavenly bodies move in space. 03/08DE PI 22 min.
