Summer Learning

Looking at the Solar System Through
Fruits and Vegetables

If the Sun were a pumpkin about a foot wide,

Mercury would be a tomato seed 50 feet away,

Venus would be a pea 75 feet away, and

Earth would also be a pea, but 100 feet away.

A little raisin would represent Mars 175 away,

Jupiter, and apple 550 feet from the Sun, and

Saturn would be a peach 1,025 feet away.

Next would be Uranus, a plum, 2,050 feet away,

Neptune would also be a plum, at 3,225 feet,

Pluto stays in the fridge...
