Space Shapes

There are many shapes in both the day and night sky. An examination of the Sun, Moon, and Earth will show that many things are round like a ball. However, not all things are round like a ball; some are round and like a pancake! Within this short program aimed at young children, our narrator introduces his audience to the motions and shapes of objects that make up our Solar System. Comparisons of these objects with questions like, "Is it round like a ball?" or, "Is it flat like a pancake?" are repeated to help children learn how to observe and group similar and unlike objects.
