3rd Class loved learning about the Solar System and we used this rhyme to help us remember the planets in order from the sun -
My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas!!
Pluto has been demoted to a dwarf planet recently. We learned about the planets linking in with our History - Race to Space.
Did you know?
-Mercury is the closest planet to the sun but Venus is the hottest because it traps the heat of the sun in clouds surrounding it!
- Pluto is the coldest, smallest and furthest "planet" away from the sun!
- Mars is nicknamed the Red Planet!
- Jupiter is the biggest planet!
The Universe is made up of stars, planets, asteroids, meteors, comets and moons - everything in outer space!!
The Solar System is just made up of the Sun (a special star) and the nine planets!
