Printable Solar System Model


Card suitable for printing on, Scissors, Glue, Paper fastners


Here is how to recreate this simple solar system model:

1) print the free hi-res jpg on cardstock with a color printer;

2) cut out the planets and the arms;

3) with a pointy knife or the tip of the scissors make a hole in the center of the sun and on one end of the arms

4) place a paper fastener in the middle of the sun and connect all the arms to it before opening it;

5) place the planets at the end of every arm with tape/glue


Once made, discuss ways of remembering order of planets -
