Solar System Supply List Starting Monday October 11, 2010, we will build our own solar systems. Your student will need to bring some supplies. Here is a list of suggestions that may help you decide what to have them bring. Also you can discuss with them how they would like to put it together to get a better idea of what would work for them. These are only suggestions, if they come up with something that seems like it might work they can try it. I would prefer if it isn’t food so that if it is well put together I can keep it to put on display. If they insist on food using that’s fine. To hold it together Toothpicks Skewers/shish kabob sticks Wire Metal Hangers For Planets and the Sun Styrofoam balls Gum Balls Balls of Yarn For Moons and Rings Skittles Milk duds Craft Pom Pom balls Gum drops Small gum balls Small Styrofoam balls They will also need some kind of paint if they bring Styrofoam balls. The paint needs to be acrylic craft paint or some water based paint, like finger paints. Please email me when you see this note. [email protected] They get points for having this signed and returned when they bring their supplies or when I get an email from you.
