In this assignment, students are asked to graph the masses of each planet in our solar system and Earth's moon (masses are provided, in comparison to Earth, if Earth had a mass of 1). Then, I laid out different fruits of various sizes, and students assigned 1 piece of fruit to each planet, based on the planet's mass. This was a great way for them to visualize the differences between the planets. The fruit definitely sparked their curiosity when they walked into class, too!
