Included in this file are colored drawings of the eight planets in our solar system. They were drawn by my fifteen year old neighbor, for me, during her last year of life as she endured leukemia. I’m keeping my memory of Jennifer and her artistic talent alive by sharing her drawings with other teachers. For each set sold, a donation will be given to Make-A-Wish, the organization which gave Jennifer and her family the last vacation they enjoyed together.
I hang these drawings on a bulletin board or on a wall in the classroom in order of their distance from the sun. They work well for astronomy units or just to show the earth in relation to other heavenly bodies in our universe.
I suggest printing the drawings on photo paper or mounting them on construction paper or cardstock and laminating them.
