In this laboratory exercise, students will be able to construct a scaled model of the solar system. The finished model is nearly two meters long! All of the paper shapes to create the lab are included in the model template, so no adding machine tape is necessary.The model displays the modern concept

Your students will perform various calculations that compare Earth statistics with other planets in our solar system. The activity is designed to support your study of the solar system and help the students visualize the concepts of size, rotation/revolution and gravity. Each student will apply the

How to calculate your weight on different planets, satellite or ISS?
- 1 sheet with Flash cards for calculate (kg versus newton) on Earth, Moon, Mars and I.S.S.
- 1 sheet for example with an astronaut.
- 1 practice sheet.
- 1 sheet for difference between Mass versus Weight and 1 Challenge problem.

Types:

Students learn to convert their weight from pounds to their mass in kilograms, then take that number and convert it to their weight in Newtons on the moon and the planets. This worksheet pushes students to organize their conversion calculations and to make connections between their calculations and

This is a two for one activity set. Both of them involve taking distances in space and scaling them down to sizes observable on Earth. The first activity calculates sizes of the planets based on shrinking the Earth down to a 1cm diameter and then showing the spacing of the planets on a football fiel

This interactive sketch shows several models of the solar system. It requires Geometer's Sketchpad to run. The sketch shows the Ptolemaic model with rotating spheres and epicycles. It also shows the heliocentric model and retrograde motion. Finally it shows Kepler's third law for planets, moons and
