RE: Planisphere - which one?
Hi, most probably this is too simple for your needs, but here is a very nice DIY planisphere for younger children:
One just needs to print one page on paper, the other on a transparency, and join both of them with a pin, rivet, or a screw. I have used this planisphere for projects in Kindergarten and elementary school and the kids liked it a lot. We also made our own armillary sphere with fischertechnik (diameter about 60 cm, costs about 15 Euro). An armillary sphere is in my opinion really the best instrument for discovering the daily motion of the sun, the moon, the stars, and the planets. Here is a link to a cardbord one:
