Draw the orbits of the planets on your city.

This is a really cool way to help students understand the size of the solar system. Go to this website, and center the map on your city. This can be done entering your latitude and longitude, or you can expand the map* to full screen and then manipulate it so that your city is at the center. Then enter "33223 mm" for the diameter of the Sun - This is how big the Sun would be if the Earth were the size of a standard globe (12 inches in diameter). Finally, select "calculate" and "show orbits".

*If you expand the map to "full screen" you will need to get out of "full screen" to enter the diameter of the Sun.
