Walking the Universe – An activity to do at school or at home!

How far is it to Mars from the Earth? What about Neptune? Let’s take a walk through our Solar System.

The order of the planets of the Solar System and the ratios that they are from the Sun are as follows – feel free to set your own distance or paces for each step (for example, the ratio of the distance between the Sun and the Earth is 1 and this can be a metre or a step.. it’s all up to you!). 

Your job is to travel to each planet using the correct ratios and mark down where you ended up in the table that can be downloaded below.
