Stepping Through the Solar System


Today we are going to walk through the Solar System!

We are going to see how far the planets are from each other using a scale through our steps.
Each of your steps should be about 1 metre in length.

In reality, this would measure around 60,000,000km!


Watch the video to see how some of our pupils who are in school got on. Open the link to try stepping through the solar system yourself. Make sure you are in a big enough space!
