As I shared last month (see Beginning A New “Best” Series Of Interest To ELL Teachers), I’m beginning to create an updated series of “Best” lists for Beginning English Language Learners. They will ultimately replace the resources I have on my outdated website.

I began with The Best Resources For Helping ELLs Learn About Sports & Other Fun Activities and  The Best Resources For Helping ELLs Learn About U.S. Money

I already have The Best Sites For Learning About Planets & Space (which I need to revised and update) but that is a mix of resources for Beginners and for Intermediate ELLs. I wanted to create a more simple list just for Beginners.

Many of the links are the still-active ones I copied-and-pasted from my website. Please let me know if you have additional suggestions of sites to add:

Space Words

Space Matching Game

Solar System Memory Game

The Race Into Space
