Model of relative sizes of the Solar system.
This activity will involve students walking (about half a mile) a scaled version of the Solar system, relative to a sun the size of a football. I laminated mine and got students to sellotape the objects which represented each planet on to the sheets. Pluto is included to provide an extra group, leave it out if you wish - Slightly shorter walk then too!
