Product Description
To successfully meet the above Next Generations Science Standard MS-ESS1-3, students must understand how to compare the enormous sizes of planets and the distances involved. Students must also have at least a basic understanding of scale and proportion.

The lesson includes hands-on, group work, and the use of technology to explore the scale properties of space and the enormous amount of space in space.

Also included:
The Case of Space Pre-Activity
Essential Questions

Materials:

Adding Machine tape
File folder or blank paper
Drawing compass, Circle template (or other traceable circle sizes. ie. Hole from notebook paper…)
Colored pencils
Online device
Meter stick
Ruler

Next Generation Science Standard MS-ESS1-3 Earth's Place in the Universe
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-ESS1-3. Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the analysis of data from Earth-based instruments, space-based telescopes, and spacecraft to determine similarities and differences among solar system objects. Examples of scale properties include the sizes of an object’s layers (such as crust and atmosphere), surface features (such as volcanoes), and orbital radius. Examples of data include statistical information, drawings and photographs, and models.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include recalling facts about properties of the planets and other solar system bodies.]
The performance expectation above was developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Science and Engineering Practices Analyzing and Interpreting Data Analyzing data in 6–8 builds on K–5 experiences and progresses to extending quantitative analysis to investigations, distinguishing between correlation and causation, and basic statistical techniques of data and error analysis.
Analyze and interpret data to determine similarities and differences in findings. Disciplinary Core Ideas ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System
The solar system consists of the sun and a collection of objects, including planets, their moons, and asteroids that are held in orbit around the sun by its gravitational pull on them. Crosscutting Concepts Scale, Proportion, and Quantity
Time, space, and energy phenomena can be observed at various scales using models to study systems that are too large or too small. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Connections to Engineering,Technology, and Applications of Science Interdependence of Science, Engineering, and Technology
Engineering advances have led to important discoveries in virtually every field of science and scientific discoveries have led to the development of entire industries and engineered systems.
