The students in PC1 at Glenns Valley began the study of the solar system last week. Students began by learning about the distances between the planets by completing this planet distance lab. The students used a roll of toilet paper to simulate the distances between the planets (each square represented 1 AU [astronomical unit]). They had to work in groups to create their own solar system replicas.
