Bring the Solar System down to Earth with this activity that scales down both the sizes and the distances of our Sun and Planets. Easy to follow instructions guide students through a series of mathematical calculations fusing both math and science together into one fun and inspiring activity. Students work together to measure distances and hold up planets. When complete, it instills a sense of awe and wonder at the immense size of our Solar System and the universe beyond. Assembling the completed model outside on a warm sunny day only enhances the experience!
