The Milky Way Story is a symbolic representation of the planet's and other key planetary bodies distance from the sun. By using beads to represent specific planets and planetary bodies, students can create a mnemonic device to share the story of our solar system. The distance from the sun is scaled by smaller black seed beads to represent 1 AU (Astronomical Unit = 150 Million KM). The Milky Way Story covers 12 planets/planetary bodies beginning with the Sun and ending with the dwarf planet of Pluto. This kit includes beads, jewlrey cord, and command cards.

Occassionally, beads will be updated depending on availability. Every attempt will be made to ensure that they resemble the old bead.
