My first grade students loved using this site. The challenge of motivating my students to write was made easier by the Windows to the Universe Journal, Postcards, and ask a Scientist. They learned about weather, the planets and wanted to learn even more about space in general. I appreciated being able to use the site to stimulate their interest in space and writing about space.

Technical Remarks:

The program is easy to navigate and understand.
