Space distances

This is a PE/Science challenge!

We are thinking about the distance from the Sun to each planet. 

But to a scale that we can recreate. 


This is the distance to each planet, from the Sun, in Million km. 

Mercury 60                               Venus 110

Earth 150                                 Mars 230

Jupiter 780                             Saturn 1,430

Uranus 2,900                           Neptune 4,500


Divide each distance by ten to find the number of steps you should do to reach each planet. 

How long did it take you to reach each planet? 

Were you worn out afterwards?
