In this activity, learners confront their perceptions of gravity in the solar system. Learners weigh themselves on scales modified to represent their weights on other worlds to explore the concept of gravity and its relationship to weight. They consider how their weights would be the highest of all the planets while standing on Jupiter, but their mass remains the same no matter where in the solar system they are! Learners compare the features of different planets to determine which characteristics cause a planet to have more or less gravity. This activity is part of a sequence of activities focused on Jupiter's immense size.
