Lesson 1:1 Actvity: Scale Of The Universe On A String

  1. 1. SCALE ON A STRING Scale model of the Solar System The table below lists each of the planets for your scale model. If the distance from the Sun to the Earth is 2 feet in your scale model, compute the rest of the values below. Distance from Sun (Miles) Distance from Sun (Feet) Mercury 35,983,610 Venus 67,232,360 Earth 92,957,100 2.0 Mars 141,635,000 Jupiter 483,632,000 Saturn 888,188,000 Uranus 1,783,950,000 Neptune 2,798,842,000 BIG HISTORY PROJECT / LESSON 1.3 STUDENT MATERIALS
  2. 2. SCALE ON A STRING Scale timeline of the universe The table below lists each of the big history thresholds for your scale model. If the length of your string is 100 feet, compute the rest of the values below. Threshold Years ago Distance on string (in feet) Threshold 1: The Big Bang 13,700,000,000 100 Threshold 2: Stars Light Up 13,500,000,000 Threshold 3: New Chemical Elements 13,499,000,000 Threshold 4: Earth & the Solar System 4,560,000,000 Threshold 5: Life 3,800,000,000 Threshold 6: Collective Learning 200,000 Threshold 7: Agriculture 11,000 Threshold 8: The Modern Revolution 250 BIG HISTORY PROJECT / LESSON 1.3 STUDENT MATERIALS
