The Dance of the Cosmos

The children worked as a team and in pairs to measure string differing in 60cm each. We used the string to draw concentric circles to represent the orbital path of each planet (the children wanted to include Pluto as a dwarf planet).  We each chose a planet and found the correct circle to stand on, the children sang their planet song to remind them of their order. When we were all in place we started our orbit around the sun as we sang the dance of the cosmos.  The Owls joined us and had the tricky job of being moons, great team work everyone!
