Activity

Planets Made Real - Creating Size and Distance Scale of Planets in the Student's Community part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students select a marble from a bowl of many of different sizes. This represents model Earth. Students are to use this model and planet information of size and distance to tabulate and record model size and distance of the solar system. Students will create cutout models of planets to display in class, and the ellipses of the planets on city and county maps with the sun located at the site of the school. Questions for further study will develop when the students see their solar system model spread out over the county.
