This week we had our very first project to complete in our Apologia Astronomy study. We had to make a Solar System to hang from the ceiling with balloons.
This project is really easy. All you need to complete it is some balloons in different sizes and colors, along with tape, construction papers and pushpins (just in case the tape won’t hold).
First off, you need to blow your planets up according to size. You will want to use your textbook for this so that you can learn exactly how big or small the planets are to each other.
After we switched homeschool curriculum mid year, we found this study to be refreshing to us and really helped us get a hands on feel for the planets and our Solar System.
