Scratch [Modelling and Simulation]

My activity booklet for building a model of a the solar system in Scratch.
Students complete some Internet research first (gives us a chance to look into searching techniques, fake news and logging data/information)
We then spend a few lessons coding the solution to the model, getting the sun to rotate around the sun. Adding the moon to rotate around earth and then adding the other planets.

This is a really fun activity that I use as a transition from talking about Internet safety, Internet skills to programing in Scratch,

I have also included an example solution file, so you can learn how to code this particular solution, as well as demonstrate a working model the students.
