Make your whiteboard come alive with science!
Full-color, realistically detailed magnets capture students’ attention as you model space science concepts on your whiteboard.
- Includes 8 planets, Pluto (dwarf planet), Sun, Earth’s moon, and asteroid belt plus Activity Guide
- Largest magnet (Sun) measures 10" in diameter
Turn your whiteboard into an out-of-this-world adventure with this colorful set of magnets. Go beyond decoration and use the magnets for discussion and sorting activities such as planet order, size, planet type, and more! Care Instructions Write on magnets with a dry or wet-erase marker for multiple uses. Test your marker on the corner of a magnet to make sure marks erase. Erase wet-erase marks with a damp cloth. Do not saturate the magnet. Too much water will damage the product. Do not bend the magnets as this will decrease their magnetism.
12-Piece set includes:
Sun Asteroid Belt, Mercury Jupiter, Venus Saturn, Earth Uranus, Earth’s Moon Neptune, Mars Pluto-dwarf planet
Asteroid large space rock covered with craters; most asteroids orbit the sun in the asteroid "belt" located between Mars and Jupiter; asteroids can be as small as a few hundred meter wide to as big as 965 km (600 miles) wide dwarf planet object orbiting the sun that is big and heavy enough to resemble a planet, but not quite big enough to have its own clear orbit around the sun; Pluto is a dwarf planet galaxy grouping of billions of stars held together by gravity whose shapes include spiral, elliptical, and irregular; our solar system is part of the spiralshaped Milky Way Galaxy gas planet sometimes called a Jovian, or giant, planet, which is made of mostly gas and lacks a clearly defined surface; includes Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus inner planets the first four planets that orbit the sun before the asteroid belt; includes Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars moon a natural satellite orbiting a planet orbit elliptical path followed by planets and other space objects as they revolve around other objects of greater gravity, like the sun outer planets the five planets that orbit the sun outside the asteroid belt; includes Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto (dwarf planet) rocky planet solid-surfaced planet that is also called a terrestrial planet; includes Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars solar system consists of a star and all the objects orbiting that start along with any other material contained in the system; our solar system includes the sun, its eight planets, their moons, and all the other celestial bodies and materials that orbit the sun, including dwarf planets, comets, and asteroids star stars are giant burning ball of hydrogen and helium gas that give off both light and heat; red and orange stars are cooler than the hotter white or blue colored stars; the sun, although large to everyone on Earth, is considered to be an average star in size (about 1,392,000 km or 864,000 miles across).
