Solar System School Project

A solar system school project is the perfect way for children to become acquainted with the solar system and how it functions.
A solar system school project can take on many forms, but the most popular project is when students complete a model of the solar system.

A solar system model for a solar system school project can be made in a variety of ways.
For example, each of the planets may be made of clay of varying colors (painted). The clay models all have thin sticks or strong straws poking into them, which lead to the sun in the middle of the solar system school project.

The planets all join to the sun by means of these sticks, making sure to keep the correct formation and order of planets as they actually are in the solar system.
Therefore, for this solar system school project, the planet Mercury would be on the shortest stick, giving it the appearance of being located closest to the sun.
Pluto would be attached to the longest of all the sticks, hence it being furthest away from the sun in the solar system school project.

The solar system school project should portray Earth as being the body of water and land that it is by carefully painting it in blue and green colors. You can even go to greater details in your solar system school project by painting the actual countries on to the planet Earth!
This will likely score you extra marks for your solar system school project and show your teacher you went that extra step in applying the details.

A good solar system school project should also be accompanied by a piece of writing or a presentation.
In a solar system school project presentation, the student can show his knowledge of the workings of the solar system by listing the planets in order without reading off paper.
This will display to the teacher that the student has learnt a great deal about the solar system whilst completing his solar system school project.

A solar system school project is a fantastic way for young people to learn and apply their knowledge of our great solar system, and with a bit of effort, your project can even be turned into a work of art!
