Exploring the Solar System ToolKit Manual: includes hands-on activities to show the structure of our Solar System, including models for sizes and distances, and to connect what is seen in the sky with where the planets are in relation to Earth.

The many NASA missions that explore our Solar System serve as an inspiration to children and adults. This ToolKit provides activities that give an introduction to the many ways we can explore, learn, and discover: fly-bys, orbiters, landers, probes, sample returns.

The second document is only the Exploring the Solar System Handout with the monthly star charts and how to find where the planets are. This can also be found within the full Manual (p. 104-117).
