I would like to incorporate the use of scale to explain the make up of
the planets next year when I teach about it. The students currently
make models with paper machea and balloons, they paint the planets to
model after their true appearance and they attach to their planet the
important facts about the planet such as: atmosphere make up, size,
distance from the sun, special characteristics that make it unique (such
as polar ice caps, temperature, etc...). The students love to research
the planets and to find out the interesting facts about how they are
made. I do not currently cover the formation of the planets and how
they evolved because it is not a part of my curriculum, but it certainly
wouldn't hurt for the students to investigate the different theories
through their research about the formation of our solar system and the
planets that make it up.

Any Thoughts on Session #8.....
