Science lesson

We have been doing our own unit study on space. They had to find at least 3 facts from each planet, the sun and stars. They have to gather some facts from a variety of sources such as: library books, some from the Nasa website, some from other websites that they have searched (with supervision), some from television shows or a movie, some from just asking people, and some from encyclopedias. Once all of these facts are done, they will need to compare them and see which ones make the most sense and are from trusted sources. Then once we have made our decision we will make a poster with what we have learned.
We have been learning alot with this. We learn how to research from different knowledge bases. How to organize our facts. We learn that not everybody has the same opinion, we learned that space facts have actually changed over time. We just learn so much more than Space.

Do you have any suggestions on how to navigate the NASA website? I feel like every time I visit that site, I look around a little bit, get overwhelmed, and then promptly leave. My dd would love to learn more about the moon in particular.
