A Solar System

Make a Solar System Model to demonstrate Sun and Nine planets orbiting around it. Paint your planets as close as possible to the images that you can find in the books or the internet. Prepare your display with information about the size, the orbit and speed of each planet.
To make your project more advanced, try to make a scaled model of the Solar System and demonstrate it in a football field.

 Material and step by step instructions
You may purchase white balls, made from hard foam and connect them to each other using metal or wooden rods. You will also need some water based paints to paint your sun and planets. To connect your planets use black rods or paint them black and put your final model against a black background. There are Kits available for solar system that include hard foam balls and black rods and instructions. A Solar System Kit can be purchased from www.MiniScience.com or KidsLoveKits online store at www.klk.com.
