If the kids like learning from watching videos, you'll have to borrow Bill Nye the Science Guy Videos from the library or purchase a few for your home or school. He has many, many videos...all good! He has lots of videos about the Earth and Our Solar System.
I read a biography about Bill Nye. He was both an engineer and a comedian. He has put his love of science and his love of comedy together in his videos for kids!
I've been to a few National Science Teachers' Conventions (Las Vegas and Boston). Bill Nye was at 2 of the events I attended. I only saw him from a distance......the line to actually meet him went on forever and ever. He's very, very, popular with science teachers to say the least!

After watching the videos have the kids write 3-10 facts that they learned from each video in their science notebooks. Then they can share their favorite facts.
Here are some full and partial clips from Bill Nye videos.
