Beore the session starts, review the activity. You’ll be lead-ing a simulation that requires an area or the participantsto move around the room. The simulation doesn’t requireany specifc amount o space or layout, but you shouldevaluate your space beore the session and make a plan orhow you’ll lay out the room or the simulation. You willneed at least seven participants or the simulation. Des-ignate one side o the room as the “surace o the sun,”and the other side o the room as the “Earth.” The area inbetween is “the atmosphere.” The area between the “sur-ace o the sun” and the “Earth” should be clear o any obstacles such as tables or chairs.
