Scaled Solar System Model

In science we investigated how far each planet is from the sun (in millions of km's!). We used toilet paper squares to represent 58 million kilometres from the sun, and calculated how we would represent this for each planet. Using the diameter size we allocated a kitchen object/food to each planet, then created a scaled representation of the solar system in the playground.
