Do Now: 
1. In your Do Now notebook, respond to the following:
"5/1: We had to shrink the planets down 1.3 billion times (13,000 and then another x100,000 for kilometers to centimeters) to make it fit on the front counter. Do we need a larger or smaller scale factor to make the whole solar system fit in the breezeway?" 
2. Take out your pink Scale of the Solar System lab from yesterday. 
3. Pick up a Sun-Earth Survey from the front counter. 
Today's Goals: 
How can we use a model in our breezeway to understand the DISTANCES in our solar system? 
Sun-Earth Survey (YOU + TWO)   Complete the front yourself, and then ask someone younger than 8th grade and someone older than 8th grade to do the two back portions.
