Description:

In this activity, learners model the gravitational fields of planets on a flexible surface. Learners place and move balls of different sizes and densities on a plastic sheet to develop a mental picture of how the mass of an object influences how much effect it has on the surrounding space. This activity is part of a sequence of activities focused on Jupiter's immense size.
