In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity allows participants to develop an understanding of the relative sizes (volumes) of the planets in our solar system. Form small groups of two to four at work tables. Say:
Your group will start with a big ball of modeling dough. You will divide it up, following the steps on the instruction sheet. When you are done, you will see how the planets in our solar system vary in size. By the time you get to tiny Pluto, you may be quite amazed.
Guide the children in following the steps on the handouts to divide the dough and create their planets.
Check with your director of religious education and/or parents about participants' allergies. If there are allergies, purchase a non-food-based modeling dough.
