This product contains multiple resources to teach an engaging/kinesthetic lesson to model how far away the planets are from the Sun. The lesson starts with a SMART Notebook to teach some important background information and then goes right into a group activity where students represent each planet's distance from the Sun using a scale, a planet card, and their own steps. My students absolutely loved this activity, but most importantly really grasped how big our Solar System truly is!
