Show Sizes of Planets in a Way Students Won't Forget
The planets or "wandering stars" of our solar system have fascinated and puzzled humanity since time began. Today, we know the planets are remnants of the formation of the solar system. Some are small and rocky; others are huge and composed of fluids. Your students may have seen pictures and drawings of the planets, however they may not be aware of how huge some of them really are. To put it in perspective, this model includes each planet cut to scale, showing their variations in size. All planets are also labeled for easy identification. Made of lightweight, durable ABS plastic, the model features small holes that allow it to be used as a mobile.
