1. Introduction to Develop a Model in Google Drawings
In this lesson, you will use measurement data to develop a scale model of the solar systemusing Google Drawings. A scale model is a copy of an object thatis larger or smaller than the actual size of the object. If a scale model includes morethan one object, they are made smaller or larger in relation to each other.
A scale model is a helpful tool for representing a science concept. For example, you can createa scale model of a cell to explain how each part works. You can use models for many otherpurposes as well, such as understanding a problem, making a prediction, or describingsomething. The model in this lesson is a drawing basedon data about the solar system. The measurements for this model have been completed for you.
But you could create your own scale model using measurements for many other objectsor systems, from the chemical structure of a molecule to the design of a vehicle.
This lesson uses Google Drawings, but you could apply these skills and concepts in anygraphic design application or even using markers and paper or other materials to build a model.
As you complete this project, you will: Use the scale in a starter project to determinethe relative size of images, Create and format a drawing,And insert and format images in the drawing.
