Comments and Teaching Tips given for Volcanoes in the Solar System Pictorial Tour Comment on this resource

In slide 11, the caption reads "blue in this picture is Mars," but this is misleading since the entire image shows Mars' surface. There's no explanation of why the surface appears blue in this image, while extensions to this slide clearly state that the surface of Mars is pink or red.

This is a wonderful resource to learn about the volcanoes of the solar system. I would suggest: changing the color of the screen to a brighter one; adding more information in the main page to raise curiosity for young students rather than in a link; and please add a chart or two comparing the data of the volcanoes. Thanks for the interesting resources.

I think that what kept me interested and following this page as best as I could, was following the page numbers. Looking at the page numbers allowed me to stay focused on one page at a time, and I would record what information I learned page by page, with each link I visited that was connected to that page. I would also enlarge the pictures to see them more clearly because they are very detailed and interesting. Lastly, I would suggest always looking at the advanced information instead of just the beginner's because the information is not too overwhelming, and it may be exactly what the viewer is looking for.
