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