Decorate planets for an out-of-this-world solar system mobile.
Young students create colorful, whimsical planets, while older ones replicate actual planetary characteristics. Discuss the unique physical properties of each planet and the effect of the sun's gravitational pull. Remember to reflect on the reclassification of Pluto as a dwarf planet.
Create a simpler version of the night sky with the Clouds, Moon, Stars and Sun. Challenge students to create stories about the night sky and share with the class. Students may also keep a journal of the night sky, documenting nightly notes with photographs or drawings.
Create a solar system mobile to demonstrate the sun and planets in the solar system.
