Great Model of the Solar System - level 1
The universe is really big. The solar system is big, too. However, it is very small compared to the universe.
Two friends make a model. It is a model of the solar system. This model is very big. The men make it in the Nevada desert.
They make this model because it is accurate. It shows the real size of the planets. This is what makes the model special. It is the only model which is this accurate.
The friends film the model. You can see the planets move. Go check it out!
Difficult words: universe (everything which exists in space; the cosmos), solar system (the sun and planets like Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars), compared to (if you compare to things, you put them close together and see how big or small they are), accurate (an accurate model shows you things correctly).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
