Paper Plate Education
"Serving the Universe on a Paper Plate"

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.
