What are asteroids? Learn more about these remnants from our solar system’s formation.
Asteroids are pieces of rock in outer space. They range from the size of a small boulder to many miles across. Asteroids are believed to be remnants from the creation of our solar system.
Most asteroids orbit the sun in the asteroid belt between two planets in our solar system. Ask students if they can identify which planets.
There are thousands of documented asteroids. Some even have their own moons. Have students research some of these noteworthy asteroids. What makes them unique?
Have students create a sculpture of an asteroid using Model Magic® modeling compound. Knead, roll, twist and shape the Model Magic to form an asteroid. Students can model the asteroid after something they have researched or create a free-form asteroid. Allow the modeling compound to air dry.
Students give their asteroid some space-inspired sparkle with Tempura Mixing Mediums. Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Use a brush to apply a thin coat of Glitter It! or Pearl It! over the surface of the asteroid. Allow the paint to air-dry.
Students display the asteroid along with their classmate’s work on a flat surface. You created a classroom asteroid belt!
