‘History of the Universe’ resource for primary teachers & new Paxi animation released!
21 January 2015
ESA Education is proud to release two new resources for primary school level.
The first resource is a teacher guide with pupil activities for children aged 8-12 focusing on the History of the Universe. Through a series of linked activities, pupils will learn about key events in our Universe’s history. Pupils then perform calculations to place these events on the more recognisable timescale of one year, helping them understand that much of the evolution on our own planet has happened in a relatively short period of time.
The second resource is a new Paxi animation. Paxi, ESA’s education mascot, leads children on a voyage of discovery through our own celestial back yard – the Solar System – encountering the eight planets and other minor bodies, such as comets and asteroids.
