Make your own model to show how the Earth orbits the sun while the moon travels around the Earth. Print onto some card, and cut out the sun, moon and Earth and the two strips. Make holes where the black dots are and use paper fasteners to attach the short strip to the back of the moon and the long strip to the back of the sun. Attach both to the back of the Earth using a single paper fastener. Your model is now ready to use!
Use these cards as a matching activity, or a fun quiz to test your friends! We've got two versions. The first provides a number to help children match the cards correctly. The second leaves them to their own devices!
