Size is everything!

If want to inspire your kids to start measuring stuff get them to check out the site The Scale of the Universe 2.

It's interactive and takes you on a journey from the biggest thing known to man to the most tiny!

You could send them on a treasure hunt - try and find Jupiter, the Grand Canyon, the Titanic, an egg, a red blood cell and a helium atom.  Each object will pop up with more information when you click on it.

Fantastic resource which we just had to share.

Although Alan is still a little overwhelmed by the size of lemons in NZ ...
