Conceptual Modeling
Mars Education modeling lesson plans are free, inquiry-based lesson plans that have been aligned to the National Science Education Standards. Scientists typically construct models as tools that are explicit representations of a particular phenomenon that they are experimenting with. These models allow scientists to visualize and understand their ideas and can eventually lead to a potential solution. 
This particular suite of lessons will focus on the size, scale and relative distance relationships of the planets within our solar system, affording your students the opportunity to create a conceptual model of the solar system that can later be applied to the dynamic processes found on our planet and many others.
