The Milky Way is a collection of some 200 billion stars. One of the many stars in the Milky Way is our Sun. Captured by the Sun’s gravity are the Earth, other planets and smaller bodies. •Within the Solar System are other small systems. Each one of the systems interacts with others to form our entire Solar System. The Earth is part of the planetary system, which is part of the Solar System. As you can see from the diagram, our universe consists of systems within systems. Systems of our Galaxy Milky Way Galaxy Solar System Planets and minor Bodies Earth/Moon Objects in our Solar System •The Solar System includes the Sun, planets, natural satellites of planets (moons), dwarf planets and smaller bodies called asteroids, comets and meteoroids. Milky Way galaxy of our solar system consists of Sun Smaller bodies classified into comets asteroids Planets orbited by Dwarf planets Inner Outer orbited by meteoroids Moons • According to the concept map, what star is the center of our solar system? The Sun • What do we call the planets closest to the Sun? The Inner Planets • Which planets are inner planets? Mercury Mars Venus Earth • What are the outer planets of our solar system? Jupiter Saturn Neptune Uranus Complete your chart as we cover each of the remaining objects of our solar system! Motion in our Solar System What is rotation? earth rotation A rotation is where the planet spins on its axis. http://www.classzone.com/books/earth_science/terc/content/visualizat ions/es0404/es0404page01.cfm?chapter_no=visualization On earth, one rotation is equal to about 24 hours. Some planets spin faster than Earth, so a day would be much shorter. What is revolution? http://www.classzone.com/books/earth_sci ence/terc/content/visualizations/es0408/es 0408page01.cfm?chapter_no=visualization Revolution means that the planet moves in an orbit around a star. Earth makes one revolution around the Sun every 365 days which equals one year! A period of revolution is equal to one year on that planet. sun Rotation on an axis Revolution around Sun 103 Solar System Solar System 11/19/14 11/19/2014 Starter What do you know about the solar system?
