This balloon activity will allow students the opportunity to construct a scale model of the Earth-Moon system, both in terms of planetary sizes and distances. In addition, students make a scale model of Mars, and discover how far one might have to travel to visit the planet. The activity is a good introduction to a unit on the solar system, to preassess student knowledge of planetary distances. Full description.
