In Mrs. Gregory’s science class we were learning about the inaccuracy of photos of the Solar System. One day we were using Play-Doh to show the sizes of the planets. We learned that Jupiter and Saturn are more than half of all the planets masses combined. We also learned that the inner planets of the solar system are really really small compared to the other planets. Our Play-Doh balls got so small we weren’t able to finish following all the directions because it was basically impossible. We learned that Juipiter is the biggest planet, and Mercury is the smallest planet.
