The Sidewalk Solar System

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 review
For elementary and middle school level children, this is an activity for making a model of the solar system that is to scale using only chalk and a long stretch of sidewalk. It is fun for the entire class, helps children think in terms of models, and helps them learn about the planets.

Reviews of The Sidewalk Solar System by Richard Ignace

Peter Salisbury reviewed on Jan. 14, 2010

What a great idea! My son will love this as he is interested in anything to do with Physics and space. This experiment will demonstrate very effectively the relative distances of planets in our solar system. The explanation is clear and easy to follow.
