In this activity, learners make a scale model of the Solar System and learn the real definition of "space." Learners use the online calculator to create an appropriate scale to use as a basis for their model. Once learners have their scaled measurements (diameters and distances), then they can walk and "pace out" the solar system by marking sticks or flags in the ground. Learners can also build a solar system on a roll of toilet paper or receipt paper. (less)

This scale model of the Galileo spacecraft is constructed of paper card stock and a sheet of printer transparency. By assembling the model, students will learn the components and features of the real spacecraft. The real Galileo was one of the most complex robotic spacecraft ever flown. It completed its mission and was flown into Jupiter's atmosphere in September 2003. (less)

In this fun and simple hands-on astronomy activity, learners construct a model of our place in the Milky Way Galaxy and the distribution of stars, with a quarter and some birdseed. This is a great introduction to the distances of objects in the universe. This activity was designed for use with sky-viewing telescopes but can be adapted to many venues. The PDF contains step-by-step instructions, photos, presentation tips, background information, and ready-to-print activity handouts. (less)

In this lesson students will learn to under understand the following: 1) The relative sizes of bodies in our solar system affect life on Earth. 2) Using mathematical proportions, we can create scale models of parts of our solar system. 3) Making a scale model of the entire solar system is problematic because the distances in space are so great that even a very small scale model would be too large to be practical.
