Year 5 Science:Model solar system

This is a FREE example of one of our lesson packs. In this lesson pack, pupils will learn the order of the planets by building their own version of the solar system using just paper, scissors and glue. This pack includes:

  • A differentiated lesson plan
  • A PowerPoint presentation explaining what a planet is
  • A printable template to make the solar system
  • A printable mnemonic
  • Two guided reading spreads: Interview with a Martian (sort of!) and the sensational scientist Nicolaus Copernicus
