Comet Encounters

Students create glitter-covered comet models. Then they make large outdoor chalk drawings of the solar system and place their comets at the location of the Kuiper belt. They carry their comets around an orbit of the sun, shaking various amounts of glitter from them to simulate the dust a comet releases when in orbit.
