The Solar System Walk

A unique lesson on the solar system, and some of the mathematics associated with it, is here for your high schoolers. Pupils are put into groups of four, and each group is assigned one of the planets from our solar system. They must perform mathematical conversions and calculations to determine their planet's distance from the sun. Two excellent worksheets are embedded in the plan, which will make implementation quite easy. Very good!
