Toilet Paper Solar System

Even in our own “cosmic neighborhood,” distances in space are so vast that they are difficult to imagine. This activity is a great exercise to help young learners comprehend hard-to-imagine concepts. Kids build a scale of model of the distances in the solar system using rolls of toilet paper.

This fantastic activity outlined by Susanne Chippindale provides detailed information about the distances between the planets and other informational facts that will make the galaxy come to life.
