Sun, Earth, Moon as spheres and their orbits.
This is a plan and worksheets to show, and for the children to experiment themselves on, how it was originally discovered that the Sun, Earth and Moon are spherical. This is done through the use of globes, mini-figures and torches. There are also images of the 3 spheres to make headbands. The children then 'orbit&' each other as a demonstration.
