Give the students time to discuss and hypothesize their answers as well as fill in the chart. Before class, you’ll need to calculate the correct answer or answers, for your class. To determine the correct combination for your particular spheres, measure the diameter of your largest sphere. This will be your sun. Take its diameter and divide by 109. That is the number of times that the sun’s diameter is greater than Earth’s diameter. Hopefully you’ll have a smaller sphere that fits close to that number. To give you a sense of how different the sizes are, if you use a normal classroom globe of the Earth, it likely has a
