    planet activity
    By Sarah

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Last year I gave them the "to scale" sizes of the planets, they had to make a scale model of the planet out of butcher paper and then they went and put the model up on the gym walls (the only room big enough to visibly display them). I also gave them the "to scale" distances between the planets and we were going to go outside and put stakes in the ground to mark off the differences but we ran out of time. The first activity really gave them a perspective on the relative planet sizes. I got the scale info from a website but I can't recall which one as I am teaching a different grade this year and don't have my files.
