Solar System Map - Cubs draw Planets and then position them to scale

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Create a scale map showing the distance of the planets from the sun.


Tape measure, paper, colours.


Cubs draw pictures of the different planets and the Sun. (They don't need to draw all of them themselves.)
They then measure the distances between the planets (using a set scale) and stick them out at these distances.
This gives the Cubs an idea of how far apart the planets are in space.
