Teaching the planets

Hi all! I am currently in the Teaching program at the University of Houston and would love some help with my lesson plan! I have designed a lesson plan where I bring in several differnt items that go together to represent the planets in our solar system. I have a few items such as a lemon, golf ball, and a few other things. Does anyone have any ideas on items that could represent the planets or done anything similar? Thank you so much!

Robin, I am sorry that I am just now seeing this post. In the future you can always search Explore All Resources at the top of this page and you can check out ngss.nsta.org for classroom resources. I haven't done this particular activity with different sized models.
