"The Earth as Peppercorn"
The goal was to model the relative sizes and distances in the solar system at the scale of 1:6,336,000,000. The Sun was set on the bottom step of Old Sayre, Sayre's Administration building. Each student group paced out the distance between adjacent planets, then placed a scale model of their assigned planet on top of an orange traffic cone. Each student presented their planet to the class. At each stop students looked back to see if the previous planet was visible. The class walked about 3/4 mile down Second Street to complete the observation.
