The planets, or "wandering Stars," have long puzzled the
ancients: were they gods or omens from another world? Today we know
they are remnants of the formation of the solar system that can vary
from small rocks to the great bulk of Jupiter. While your students have
no doubt seen pictures of the planets, it can be difficult for them to
"put it in perspective." Which is where our economical model can help!
Using Mercury as the benchmark, we have cut each planet "to Scale" out
of lightweight, durable ABS plastic you can use over and over. The
size of the pieces ranges from 1" to 29" in diameter; each is labeled
for easy references. Small holes allow the model to be used as a mobile.
This item ships oversize. Oversize fees will be added to your shipping.
