    Feeling extra creative?? You could attempt this project outside, use brightly colored items to represent your planets. If you do this method write down what color represents each planet (a written ‘key’) before going outside. One, so you don’t freeze while trying to write, so your photo and process is understandable compared to “papers” as described in the instructions that would have each planets name on them.
