Making our solar system
After lunch today K2M joined the rest of the K2 children in making a representation of our solar system. With the sun in the middle we realised that each planet makes a bigger circle as it goes round its orbit.
We then talked about warm planets near the sun and cold planets far away. We also realised that the far out planets make much bigger circles
We lined the planets up in order.
Mercury and Venus had a short walk.
But Nepeune and Uranus had a long way to go!
