NASA's Space Place on Facebook

We have created a Facebook page for the NASA Space Place. Please encourage your fellow educators to "become a fan" of the Space Place Facebook page -- by publishing and circulating the paragraph below.

Our Facebook page contains original activities NOT on the Space Place -- as well as highlights of the new activities on our site.

Thanks for helping us get out the word on this new feature!



For those of you with Facebook pages, we just created a page for NASA’s Space Place Web site, The Space Place an extensive, content-rich Web site for upper elementary age kids, their teachers, parents, and anyone else who likes a simple, readable, fun presentation of a wide range of space and Earth science and technology topics. Most of the site is great for kids to explore on their own, with interactive games, hands-on projects, and fun facts. But it also has lots of stuff for teachers. Teachers especially appreciate the bi-monthly Space Place Newsletter for educators, which has lots of suggestions for how to use the resources of this Web site in the classroom. See the "Teacher's Corner" at

Check out “NASA’s The Space Place” new page on Facebook, where you will also find exclusive content only for our Facebook fans! Become a fan, and we'll also let you know whenever we add a new game, animation, cartoon “talk show,” fun fact, or any other interesting stuff. It’s a great way to explore space!


Thanks much!
