Teach your students the smallest and fastest planet in our Solar System!

Cover the exterior and interior features of the planet closest to the Sun with our easy to make model! Mercury is a rocky planet like our own but with very little atmosphere so looks more like our Moon. It races around the Sun faster than any other planet whilst being baked on one side and frozen on the other!

Your students begin by making their model of Mercury, then they use it to learn what conditions are like on the surface and what's inside the planet.
