Your Weight On the Other Planets

Sixth graders determine how their weight would differ on another planet in the solar system. Using a spreadsheet, they find their weight on each planet and discover how gravity and the size of the planet affect it. They compare and contrast Earth to the other planets in terms of size, composition and whether it can support life.
