Our stop motion video about Earth.
Here is a map I created of our Solar System.
I placed my map in New York! The Statue of Liberty being the sun and the Empire State Building as the Earth. The way I placed the planets is, I used astronomical units (AU) and my scale (the distance from the sun to earth). The distance from the sun to earth was 8330m. So to find where Mercury should be placed I multiplied 8330 by 0.387 (Mercury’s distance from the sun in AU’s). I did the same with Venus to Neptune and the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
In this lab we did a race to see which rulers could spin the fastest using static electricity. Though a lot of the groups’ rulers were not moving as fast as we excepted (including mine), we still had fun and fit to learn which materials were better to use in producing static charge. 😀
Here are some photos and videos from the lab we did on static electricity.
