Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star…
•
How I wonder what you are?
•
What is a star or a planet?
•
Where are they found?
•
What is
•
Let’s find out, get Ready to
embark on a Universal
Outer Space?
Adventure that’s
“ Out of this World.”
Our Solar System
•
In the universe there are hundreds galaxies with thousands of solar systems
within them. Within these solar systems we can find planets, stars, comets
and many other amazing objects. Our solar system is found in the Milky
Way galaxy. Our solar system is kind of like a neighborhood where all our
planets live. In our neighborhood there are nine planets. All of which are very
different, just like people. There are also thousands of comets and asteroids
that come to visit us. Our solar system is a very elaborate place. So let’s
begin to EXPLORE!
Comets and
Asteroids
•
Comets are space traveling
ice formations that were left
behind during the creation
of our solar system.
•
Comets are visible to the
naked eye on certain days of
the years. (Make a wish)
•
Asteroids are rocky
formation that travel through
space.
•
Asteroids have been linked
to the extinction of the
dinosaurs on Earth, 65
million years ago.
The Planets
•
A planet is a large space
object that moves in orbit
around the sun.
•
Some planets can hold life.
•
Others are very dangerous
places.
•
Planets can have moons.
•
Cool Fact: Humans and
planets are made up of the
same substances.
The Sun
•
The sun is the most
important element within our
solar system.
•
The Sun is a star.
•
It provides light and heat
energy that helps support
life on Earth.( Humans,
plants, animals and the
atmosphere)
•
Because of the sun there are
four seasons on Earth.
•
The sun is 333,340 times
bigger than the Earth.
Mercury
•
Mercury is the closest planet to
the sun.
•
A year on Mercury is about 87
Earth days.
•
It is the faster planet in our solar
system.
•
It is a very small and rocky
planet.
•
It is an extremely hot planet.
Venus
•
Venus is a cool place because it
could be Earths twin.
•
But Venus has no oceans and is
covered in a thick, rapidly
spinning cloud that traps heat.
•
This causes intense heat and
volcanic activity.
•
Thus, Venus is the HOTTEST
planet in our solar system.
•
It takes 224 Earth days to make
one year on Venus.
Earth
•
Earth is our home planet.
•
It is the only planet that can
support life.( Humans,
plants, animals, etc.)
•
It is also the only planet that
has a liquid water surface.
•
It takes 365 days to make
one year on Earth.
•
Earth has one moon.
The Moon
•
The moon belongs to the
Earths Orbit.
•
It became part of the Earth
when a large body of mass
(asteroid) hit the Earth millions
of years ago.
•
The moon broke apart from the
asteroid and became part of
the Earth.
•
The moon can been seen by
everyone on Earth.
•
One year on the Moon is 27
Earth days.
Mars
•
Mars is the closest planet to
the Earth.
•
Mars has a change of seasons.
It resembles a cold dessert.
•
Mars does not have any signs
of life on it’s planet today.
•
Mars has evidence that life
may have existed in the past
or that life may be able to exist
in the future.
•
Mars has two moons.
•
It takes 686 Earth days to
make one year on Mars.
Jupiter
•
Jupiter is the largest planet in
our solar system.
•
Jupiter has 63 moons and
several rings.
•
It takes 11 Earth years to make
one Year on Jupiter.
•
Jupiter is a very dangerous
planet.
On Jupiter it rains acid
and is very stormy.
•
•
Jupiter has a hurricane called
the “RED SPOT” that has
existed for hundreds of years.
•
Cool Fact: Almost three Earths
could fit in Jupiter's “Red
Spot”.
•
More than 1,000 Earths can fit
inside of Jupiter.
Saturn
•
Saturn has 31 moons.
•
One year one Saturn is 29 years
on Earth.
•
Saturn has several beautiful
rings.
•
Rings are made up of bits of
rock and ice. On Saturn ring
bits can be as big as a house .
•
The wind on Saturn moves at
about 500 meters per sec, while
on Earth the fastest Hurricane
winds only move about 110
meters per sec.
•
Cool Fact: Saturn is the only
planet in our solar system that
could float in water.
Uranus
•
Uranus is considered to be the
brightest planet in our solar
system.
•
It is know for it’s blue-green
color.
•
It has 11 rings and 27 moons.
•
84 Earth years equals one year
on Uranus.
•
Uranus is a gas planet.
•
Cool Fact: Before scientist
discover Uranus was a planet,
they believed that Uranus was
a comet.
Neptune
•
Neptune has 13 moons.
•
It takes 164 Earth years
to make one year on
Neptune.
•
Neptune is a very cold
planet.
•
Cool Fact: It is actually
the farthest planet in our
solar system for a 20 year
period out of every 248
years.
Pluto
•
Pluto is the smallest, coldest
and most distant planet from
the sun.
•
Pluto has one moon.
•
247 Earth years make one
year on Pluto.
•
Pluto is the planet that
scientist know the least about
because of its size and it’s
distance from Earth.
•
Cool Fact: Pluto is 2/3 the size
of Earths moon.
How far way are they?

The Distance between the planets
•
The planets are found in this order: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter,
Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto
•
•
•
•
•
A cool tip for remembering the order of the planets:
My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nine Planets
or
My Very Early Morning Jam Sandwich Usually Nauseates People
Now try and create your own silly sentence.
The Universe is in Orbit
•
All the planets have an
orbit around the sun.
Mercury
•
Each full orbit around the
sun creates a year on
that planet.
Venus
Pluto
Earth
Neptune
The Sun
•
Moons also have an orbit.
Mars
•
But, they orbit around
their planet. For example,
the moon orbits the Earth.
Uranus
Jupiter
Saturn
NASA
•
NASA, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, goal is to
further the knowledge and understanding we have our universe.
•
It strives on improving life on our home planet.
•
It is a very important institution. It provides leading research on weather
and aircrafts, and even helps develops methods to help cure the ill.
•
Cool Facts: NASA names all the hurricanes. It invited the cool bed.
(on t.v.) and it invited a pen that can write upside down.

activities click here: Our Solar System
NASA
•
NASA is the group that
organized the first trip to the
moon.
•
The United States has been
the only country to land on the
moon.
•
The moon has been the only
place that mankind has
landed.
•
Let’s watch and see what
happened…
QuickTime™ and a
Sorenson Video decompressor
are needed to see this picture.
Remember the sky is the limit !
•
•
•
•
Now you are all experts
on the worlds beyond
your own.
Space is fun, full of lots of
magic and adventure.
Remember Earth is one
of a kind, so try and it a
cool place.
Try to look up towards
the sky, you never know
what you might find.
