Sizing Up The Universe

This fun, interactive lesson helps to put the size of the universe in context, using the student’s own address (or the address of the school; it’s up to you). It’s fun to play with, and fascinating for any age group. To check it out, click here, then click on the “Online Interactive” link (a picture of the Earth and a basketball).

Also, the parent site, Smithsonian Education, has LOTS of great stuff if you’re in the mod to explore.
