Planets & Earth Comparison

Without knowing I’d posted an article about the sun and planets, called Seeing God, my father-in-law emailed a series of photos to me – beautiful scale models of the planets and our sun which fit in beautifully with the next day’s lesson.

Comparison of Earth to Venus, Mars, Mercury, and Pluto

Comparison of Earth to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune

We found it much easier to see how Jupiter’s size is the equipvalent of 1,000 Earths, on the photos he sent, rather than to continue our hands-on project crayon-tapping 1,000 tiny Earths onto our craft paper planets. Thanks, Dave!!
