PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Super engaging activity to help students picture the immense size of our solar system and the universe as a whole. Mind-blowing for teachers and students alike.

I cannot take credit for this activity. Original is found here.

In this download you will find a document with the text from the website above. You will also find a 10 page SMART Notebook file that I used to introduce the activity. (I included a .pdf of the 10 slides just in case you do not have SMART Notebook)

I would definitely use this in any 'space' unit, but even if you don't teach space science - I think it's worth taking a day to allow your middle school or high school students to experience it.

It says you need a field, but I was able to use the street right outside our school building. We had to stop at Uranus (we were so far away from the sun - literally and figuratively, that I was worried about supervision.)

A great way to get students thinking about the enormity of our universe.
