    I saw this in one of my science workshops this past summer. These are the things they used... Mercury--marble; Venus--walnut; Earth--golf ball; Moon--raisin; Mars--acorn; Jupiter--basketball; Saturn--soccer ball; Uranus--softball; Neptune--grapefruit; Pluto--bean. The sun was a large hula hoop that they covered with yellow bulletin board paper.

    A friend of mine created a very large "tent" using thick, black plastic. She used a fan to inflate the entire "tent." It was really neat and large enough for almost the entire class to fit in. She had painted the constellations, the moon, etc. on the inside. The kids loved it! They even used it for reading time. (I wish I had a picture because I'm sure it would speak more than my 1,000 words!!!):rolleyes:
