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.

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.

This activity is based on a reduced-scale model of the Solar System built on a map of a city students are familiar with. This provides them with an understanding of the great distances between the different bodies of the Solar System and their relative size. Students will investigate the characteristics that are required from these bodies to build a scale model using common objects.
