Planetary Motion – What’s Out There

I have began my research into the abyss to discover what kind of resources are available for GCSE level students to learn about astronomy topics the first topic is planetary motion. I have come across a game on the internet that allows the user to place the planets in the correct order and to have them orbit at the correct pace.

Motion Planet is a game on the android market that again challenges the player to put the planets in the correct alignment and then have them orbit in the correct way. What I have began to notice so far is there are games that challenge players about planetary alignment & Motion however nothing yet that teaches the person about the topic first there seems to be practice available.
