CREATE A POCKET SOLAR SYSTEM

Create your own Pocket Solar System that illustrates a scale model of the distances between objects in space. Now you can have some fun too, learning just how vast our solar system is using simple materials that you have at home!

You will need:
1. A paper strip (1 meter by 3 inches)
2. Markers
3. Planet "stickers" (CLICK HERE for a printable PDF)

You can glue or tape your planets to make "stickers" or you can draw your own!
