5RM’s Scaled Model of our Solar System

In Science today, 5RM created a scale model of the Solar System to help us to visualise the different sizes of the planets and how much distance was between them. We used sports balls to represent planets, considering the sizes, and we measured the distances using toilet roll squares. 1 square represented 64 million kilometres!

^Joey labelled the image of our scale model to show which planets were represented by which sports ball


^Chloe recorded the details of our scaled model and then wrote up how we created it.^
