Models in Science

You use models in science when the object you're studying is too small or too far away. Some scientists build a model of the planets because they are too far away. You can use models to figure out if something works.

Making and Using Models

Some models are better than others in certain experiments. To use models first you have to decide what the model will represent. A terrarium holds a living model of land habitat.
