How Far is It

Today in science class we created scale models of how far it is from the Earth to the Moon. The kids predicted that the moon would be no more than 2-3 meters away on our scale model. When they actually created the model they were amazed at how far away it was. (It is 10x the circumference of the earth or 240,000 miles away.) In our model the moon (a baseball) was about halway down the hall from the earth (a globe).
