Can you make your own Solar System?

Make your own Solar System

It's easier for a child to memorize the order of the planets in the Solar System if he or she creates a Solar System of his or her own. Inexpensive Styrofoam balls can be hung from fishing line to create a three-dimensional Solar System in a child's room. Have the child paint each “ball” to resemble the surface of each planet. Make rings for the outer planets using old CDs.
