Question Comets

My son is trying to do a project on Hallieys comet.He needs to come up with a model. But we cannot figure out what to use for one. He is in the 6th grade . It does not have to be to complated. Using household things if possible.

Very troubled about comets!!!
Thank you

sciencefreak is a brilliant scientist admired by others

use an old box and suspend a ball (as big the u want the comet) with a string in the centre. Cover the ball with paper mache and for the tail use old newspaper. twist the paper and stick it in place. Paint the whole thing. Shoil work.

Fact - The Halley's Comet is seen once in 76 yrs.

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.

that's a good idea sciencefreak well and you can explain that the tail is the sun's feflextion as comet is ice and dust...

happy day
"with out war we cannot appreciate peace!"

Gentle movements
of love,
The watching over from Heaven.
The eternity of love.
Wonders, Questions
that could never be answered.
But only faith
that swirls forever around us.
Praise Lord Jesus Christ!
