Grade 4 is beginning a new science unit on Planets and Other Objects in Space. For our project, students will take their knowledge of our solar system and create a 3-dimensional model of it. The planets should be in the correct order and be relatively proportioned to each other (example: Mars should not be bigger than Jupiter). The sun should be included as part of the solar system. All planets should be clearly labeled in some way. This is a project meant to not only see how students view the solar system, but to also showcase their creativity. Students are encouraged to use color and to get creative while learning.
This project is worth 30 points and is due March 21. Each student will have to present their project to the class, so they should come prepared to discuss how their 3-D solar system model was created and be able to discuss a little about each planet.
