Albourne family- planets

21st April 2020
Amelie's solar system project.
Amelie worked very hard as we worked out the distances of all of the planets from the sun and the diameters of all the planets. After this she worked out a scale for the distances from the sun across 10-m in the back garden. She also worked out a scale for the size of the different planets, and they ranged from a grain of sugar to a bouncy ball for Jupiter. The sun was the largest size, a football. We did make a film of the work that we've been doing, however, the film is too big a file to be sent. So instead I have attached some screenshots of what we got up to.
