Sun, Earth, Moon Model To Scale-preview

This lesson starts with the assumption of the sun being a basketball. If that’s true, then how big would earth be? And how far away would it be? We’ll need to do some math to figure those diameters and distance. Then we’ll have to go outside to show, to scale, where that tiny little earth is. Yes- finally- a (partial) solar system to scale by both diameter and distance.
