Making Models of the Solar System

Students make several models of the solar system to learn the positions of the planets in the solar system as well as relative distances and sizes. Creation of these models will help them identify the planets by size, shape, color, features, and position in the solar system. This lesson also includes practice of key vocabulary words as well as the skills of asking and answering specific questions.
