Chelsea has just started Apologia Science Exploring Creation with Astronomy. Her project this week was to make the Solar System out of balloons and hang it from the ceiling. This was an inexpensive way to make the solar system (the balloons cost $1.17) and it was fun. Her book had suggested dimensions for the balloon sizes so you could see how they would compare in outer space. They also learned the order of the planets from the sun. The boys wanted to get in on the project too so we made one to hang in their room and one to hang in Chelsea's room.
