Our Solar System is made up of our Sun, eight planets, three dwarf planets, and their moons.
All you will need is:
A hanger with 10 strings attached to it
A hole puncher
Crayons, markers, or colored pencils
A printout with the numbered planets (including the Sun and Pluto)
Color your printout of the sun and planets.
Cut-out your sun and planets.
Place the models in order, starting with the sun and ending with Pluto.
Punch a hole through the top of them.
Starting with the sun at one end of the hanger, thread the string (that is hanging from the hanger) through the hole and tie a knot.
Continue these steps until you have the sun and all the planets hanging in the correct order.
***Remember….1=Sun, 2=Mercury, 3=Venus, 4=Earth, 5=Mars, 6=Jupiter, 7=Saturn, 8=Uranus, 9=Neptune, 10=Pluto….***
