I saw this little activity initially on Pinterest and quickly added it to my board. Then, for some crazy reason, it was no longer there. Fortunately, I managed to find directions on a couple of other websites (here’s one). One listed the distance of the planets and moon from the sun in inches and another had print-outs of the planets. We combined the two sites to create the activity below.
We used the orange golf ball to represent the sun.
A little science, a little math, a lotta fun, this is what I call home-“schooling”.
