The Solar System, Our Sun's Family, has two sides. The first side includes a description of how our solar system was formed, and shows a map of our solar system, with each planet's orbit in relation to the Sun and to the other planets. Interesting facts and figures accompany each planet's description. Side two is a stunning poster that shows images of each planet.
The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the fames can be much lighter and less expensive.
