Bringing the Solar System Down to Earth
Students create a scaled-down model of the solar system by calculating the planets' diameters and distances from the sun and then building the model outdoors. These worksheets will help them record their findings about the solar system. This activity includes Pluto as a planet, even though it is now classified as a dwarf planet.
