In this activity, learners shrink the scale of the vast solar system to the size of their neighborhood. Learners are challenged to consider not only the traditional "planets," but also some of the smaller objects orbiting the Sun. Learners compare the relative sizes of scale models of the planets, two dwarf planets, and a comet as represented by fruits and other foods. They determine the spacing between the scaled planets on a map of the neighborhood and relate those distances to familiar landmarks. This activity is part of a sequence of activities focused on Jupiter's immense size.
