Scale Solar System Model
Using reference materials available in the classroom or library, look
up the diameters of the sun and the planets. Look up the distances
from the sun to each planet. Record this data in a spreadsheet and
compute the sizes and distances you would need to use to make a scale
model of the solar system.
You may also find the information about the planets at Bill Arnett's web site
The Nine Planets.
