During this activity students will calculate the scale distances for each of the planets makes 93,000,000 miles=1 cm. Then students will use their rounded results to create a poster that represents the scale distances of the planets. Once my students were done I let them decorate with beads, string, and glitter! Once they complete their posters they will complete conclusion questions as a group.
I spent one day teaching part 1 to the students so they understood what the scale distance represented, during this time I only gave them part one. The next day I reviewed how to use the ruler and then they completed part 2... that is why part 2 has the rounded answers on it... you can edit this document and take that out if you want to distribute the directions as one packet!
