The model of the Solar System which shows the position of the planets in relation to the Sun and the diversity of their sizes. All planets are mounted on holders attached to the base, which makes it possible to rotate them around the axis in which the model of the Sun is placed. Thanks to this, students working with the model can also look at the phenomenon of planetary motion.
The model will be especially useful in geography, nature, physics and early childhood education classes.
If you would like to get ideas and inspiration about using these models during your lessons please check out our Skriware Academy suggestions: “Electron shells” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/33.
Note: The model must be assembled before use.
The whole set consists of 19 models, including 9 celestial body models, 9 planetary model holders and the base of the model. The files in the set have been prepared in such a way as to be printed separately or as a part of one printout.
Among the files to be printed you will find:
It consists of:
- Planet holders: base model and holders with planets are placed,
- Planets and sun top: planet models and upper hemisphere of the Sun model with pins for the Sun models of Saturn and Jupiter,
- Sun bottom: the lower hemisphere of the Sun model.
Visualization and descriptions of individual elements can be found in the model assembly instructions: [ASSEMBLING INSTRUCTION] Solar System
