Making Stuff: Saturn Model

by This is Carrie on November 12, 2010

Princess completed her first (and definitely not last) school report this week which included research, a short paper, an oral presentation and a visual aide.  The subject?


Using a styrofoam ball, a thrifted LP (The Osmonds if you must know), paint, sand, and glitter, she put together a beautiful model of Saturn depicting it’s yellowish, brownish color and rings made of rocks and ice particles.

Nice model!

That reminds me of one of my 3rd grade projects–we made the solar system with papier-mache formed over blown-up balloons.

WOW! I am disgusted!! What an insensitive JERK you are! I’m saddened that you took the time to judge, ridicule, and hurt a child. She is in third grade! I sincerely hope that you don’t, and never will, have children…… if this is any indication of the kind of person you are. Maybe you had a bad day? i don’t know the circumstances, although there is NEVER an acceptable time to be downright cruel. Ever heard of This little girl deserves a huge appology. But you probably aren’t man enough to sink to that level. You are the kind of person to hide behind a computer to make hurtful comments to people/children.

On another note, I am currently helping my first grader do a Saturn project and we will definitely be taking some ideas from this. I think that her project was excellent and thankful we found it.
