The Scale of Life is flash based, and shows the size of objects relative to other objects. Along the bottom of the site is a slider that lets students zoom in or out in size to see things relative to each other. Students can get as small as 0.0000000001 yoctometers to as large as size of the known universe.
The Scale of Life is a neat way for students to explore size, frscience and math. Students can examine the scale of objects compared to other objects and make observations about size and purpose of the object in the universe.
