Tellurium is a model used to demonstrate the motion of the earth and moon around the sun. This attractive and captivating material is a simplified reproduction of the solar system. Tellurium is not a replica of reality, but a model to explain the different principles of day and night, summer and winter and the positions of the moon. Tellurium visualizes for children, the fascinating effects created by the rotational movements in our sun-earth-moon system.

There are 3 major rotations:
- The earth rotates on its axis every day. This results in day and night, allowing us to see the sun, moon, and stars moving across the sky.
- The moon revolves around the earth approximately every four weeks. This results in the different phases of the moon.
- The earth (with the moon) revolves around the sun in one year. This is where the seasons come from and the fact that we can see other constellations.

Using the flashlight, "sunlight" can be projected onto the earth and moon to show children the different effects of earth and moon rotation. A figurine to be fixed on the globe is included to make it easier for children to put themselves in the situation. An instruction manual that gives further information on using the Tellurium is included.
