Revisiting the Solar system

Our earth day celebration brought us back to the subject of our planet. What makes our planet special? How is our planet different from other planets in our solar system? 
Because we were also celebrating our good friend Titus’ 5th rotation around the sun, what a perfect time to revisit our solar system.
We read a book about the solar system and identified each planet, their size, color, and relation to the sun. 
Using various materials we constructed a 2D model of our solar system. Each child picked how they would like to help. Drawing the planets, the stars, the sun, and helping decide where each planet should be located were all part of this group project. 
After, we made sure to color around each planet and star the color of space. 
We decided as a group where to hang this and reflected on how we made this awesome piece of art.
