Summary:Below are instructions for making a simple paper model of the magnetosphere, out of a single sheet of paper. The black and white image can be copied in an ordinary xerox machine and may be colored by you or by students in whichever way is preferred. However, if you have a color printer, especially one that can handle construction paper, you might want the color version. Either version is printed out lengthwise, like an ordinary sheet of text.
