How can I get help on astronomy for kids?


Answer by  HilaryC (1382)

There are dozens of books on the subject. Check out your local bookstore such as Barnes and Noble, Borders, or Books a Million. Also, some towns have astronomy clubs which may offer some advice or lessons. There are also programs which go around to schools to teach astronomy to classrooms.

Local children's museums are filled with people who know all manner of things, and often Universities in your area have planetariums and programs to reach out to the public of all ages! Astronomy is an old world skill children can learn from any number of people. High School and middle school science teachers might also have direction.

Check your local library for astronomy books. Books available for both a child's level and adults. Also, check your area for any science museums. Good tools for learning.

Talk to your child's school science teacher. There are many resources that she/he can direct you too, including: books, websites, and local planetariums and museums. Keep in mind, follow your childs interests and don't force them into something you might like but they do not.

The best way to help kids learn about astronomy would probably be to explain the planets and moons of the solar system, then move onto other solar bodies, such as asteroids and comets. The next topic would be to move to the stars and how they are in the sky and how they make the milky way galaxy.

You can help on astronomy for kids by exposing them to what the science is. Their interest must be piqued, so be enthusiastic and introduce ideas and events that will excite them. Then expose them to astronomy from internet sources such as google and wikipedia. Then buy a cheap telescope.
