## The Solar System

High schoolers construct a sketch of the planets in our solar system using concentric circles and angles. In this solar system lesson plan, students plot the position of each planet on concentric circles using graph paper. The sun is included and a ray is drawn due East to serve as a distance scale and an angle reference. This allows high schoolers to determine where and when a planet will be visible on any given date.
