Paper Plate Education
Activity: Impact Game
On a large plate or pizza tray, draw the orbits of the
planets around the sun. Fasten cups
of varying sizes on the orbits to represent the planets.
On a piece of string secure a bead to represent space debris.
Repeatedly flip the bead onto the solar system plate or tray and note
which planets receive the most impacts.
Assign point values or create game legend.
