Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hands-on Tool This is a great, practical, and easy to store tool that get students used to the idea of planet distance. In the past, we have always paced out the distances back and forth across the black top, but in a class of 30, it can get unwieldy. This mapping tool is a fun gadget that the kids want to "play with." They can manage it on their own without teacher direction. They are really proud of themselves when they come up with new places to try it out. We get a great lesson in estimation out of it too. I teach fifth grade and find that it is especially helpful as a center during small group work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Whole-Class Outdoor Activity This was an excellent resource for a whole class activity! I used it with 3rd grade students, but I could see it being appropriate for grades 1-8, depending on how much discussion you give to the topic. I have previously done this activity by having the students measure and stand in certain spots across the school's field, but this took out a lot of the hassle, and helped the students to quickly understand where the planets are in relation to one other, and the visual representation with the downloadable planet posters was terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Fun and Useful I received this solar system mapping tool as a gift and found it to be a real time saver. I teach both STEM and Math, with this tape I was able to put the students right on the mark where each planet is in relation to the sun. I didn't need to set up my own model this time, and the distances on the tape allowed me to make some very good math connections. The case and tape are both very sturdy and well designed. My students didn't have any problem using it, and it was nice to have it reel in and out easily. It did require room to use it effectively, but that is to be expected when modeling the distances of the planets. If you can get outside or have a long hallway to use this tool, it is fantastic!
