Scale Our Solar System

For this activity I created planet fact cards (see attached) I printed these out (4 to and A4 Page) and stuck them on some A5 Card with a scale planet on it.

Finding the scale planets is the hard bit. If you use a large beach ball for the sun then you need some very small bits for Mercury and Mars ( I used the coloured sugar for decorating cakes)
