These labels pair perfectly with student-created models of the solar system. Students must match the distances from the sun listed at the bottom of the page to the planet labels above. But, the distances aren't in order (the planet labels are) - students will need to use their knowledge of place value to help them match the distances to the correct planets! (For example, students should know that Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, so therefore, the distance that matches Mercury must be the smallest number!)
