Here are some great videos about the solar system,
http://www.sdlearn.com/product_p/001050682.htm
Talks about prominent ancient astronomers and their theories of how the solar system worked, Kepler's Laws, gravity, properties of light, the earth, the moon, and other stuff.
http://www.sdlearn.com/product_p/001050300.htm
Talks about the planets, asteroids, comets, meteoroids, the layers of the sun, fusion, and other important stuff that I can't remember.

These really helped me, you should try them out.
