“Planetary Play-Doh” Solar System Mass Comparison

Views: 4698

This is the pdf version of the written directions for the Solar System Mass Comparison activity that uses Play-Doh or any other dough like materials. The activity was originally submitted by science teacher Jacob Noel-Storr and has been adapted/modified several times since his original work. This version uses cylinder shapes to make the dividing of the dough into even sections more manageable for younger students.
