This is an activity about planetary sizes and distances. Learners will construct a scale model of the Earth, Earth’s Moon and Mars in relation to each other using balloons. They will use this model to predict distances and reflect on how scientists use models to construct explanations through the scientific process. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model and includes teacher notesand vocabulary. 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

This is a lesson about the size and scale of the planets in the solar system. Learners will help create and then navigate an outdoor course of the traditional planets (including dwarf planet Pluto), which are represented by small common objects. By counting the jumps needed to reach each object, learners experience firsthand the vast scale of our solar system. The activity should be done in a large outdoor area. This activity is part of Explore! Jupiter's Family Secrets, a series designed to engage children in space and planetary science in libraries and informal learning environments. 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.
