Studying the Solar System

Following their study of the solar system and as the culminating activity to the unit on the sun, moon and planets, third-graders in Michelle Mathon’s class at William E. DeLuca Elementary School created their own solar system. With each student responsible for researching a planet, they worked together to create papier-mâché versions. These crafts, along with posters filled with facts on the various plants, were displayed in Mrs. Mathon’s classroom.
